Hello,

How do you know that your suffering from oral thrush? It may be due to chronic bacterial infection or allergy. Thrush may be seen in immune compromised individuals. Use candid b mouth paint for oral thrush. Use tablet Amoxicillin and Clauvulinic acid 625 mg for five days. Use salt water gargling thrice a day for five days. Avoid cool drinks and ice creams. If the symptoms not improved please get it done throat swab culture and sensitivity and review with reports and consult with your ENT specialist.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Penchila Prasad Kandikattu, Internal Medicine Specialist
