Hi
Typical thrush has symptoms like curdy white discharge,severe itching etc.You will need to see a doctor for antbiotic medication which can be given only after examination to confirm thrush.There are several kinds of vaginal infection and only a doctor can distingush between them.

Hi. I m a 20yr old male and I ve had what appeared to be thrush for a few months now. I ve had multiple treatments for thrush including nystatin and diflucan and nothing is working. Went back to the doctor this time and he said he didn t see any thrush. Swabbed my throat and there was no fungal infection present. I m not sure what s going on, but when this condition flares up, I feel like my throat it filled with mucus and it makes me want to puke. Also, the roof of my mouth has been discolored white since the beginning of this. My tongue and throat have been slightly discolored white as well. I m not sure what this is but it s miserable when it flares up and my primary doctor now says it looks normal after all of this.

Hi. Ive had a feeling of constant hearburn for about a month and thrush for 3 weeks. And today I feel really dry at the back of my throat, like Ive been breathing with my mouth open, but Im not. Ive had several cups of water and the dryness feels almost like it is getting worse, not better but the heartburn has dropped off a bit. Do I need to see a doctor?
