I had thrush. Was treated. Iwas on 4 different antibiotics for an infected toe.Then had surgery for bunion and hammer toe. Also before this all happened I got cdif. I still have mouth problems which have gotten worse dentist wants a biopsy for autoimmune disease. All this has been gone on since end of Jan.
I am 39 year old female that got oral thrush from smoking, excessive dry mouth. My condition was made worse by a physician assistant that misdiagnosed my problem and prescribed me two different kind of antibiotics. Now the dentist says I should get a tooth implant, but I am worried because of the oral thrush .
I have been diagnosed with Lichen Planus of the Oral Mucosa. I have had the signs and symptoms since May of this year and was just diagnosed. My problem is I cannot find a Dr who will actually treat my symptoms. I have been to Dentists, Oral Surgeons, ENT who did diagnose by Biopsy but does not treat disease, Dermatologist in Coatesville, Pa. area who does not treat this and last a Rhuematologist who does not treat. Everyone said to go to a Dermatologist but half of them can diagnose but not treat. I have had blood work for Hep C, LUPUS, ANEMIA, B12 and all tests were negative. I had other blood work as well...again negative. I have been on all the Magic mouthwashes, Antibiotics, Solu medrol packs three times, Decadron twice for 3 days and now most recently Prednisone 30 mg for two weeks and then taper. This is not working either. My medical Dr refuses to treat me or taper my Prednisone. I don t want to drive to Philadelphia. I feel no one cares and I am aware that if not treated this could lead to Cancer. Any suggestions. I did find a Dr that supposedly treats this but I need to wait a month for an appointment. Mean while who is going to continue treatment..no one and I go right back to square one.
