I am now recovering from eurythema multiforme and oral thrush. With oral thrush, the cotten, strange feeling in my mouth is gone. However on my tongue, i have mutiple raised white dots and i have loss sense of taste. I was wondering if this could still be a result of me still recovering from oral thrush?
Hello, I am glad to be of assistance. I would like to know how you have treated the oral thrush? Did you take a prescription anti-fungal medication? Make sure you are gently cleaning your mouth including brushing your tongue. Raised areas are common with thrush. The tongue may take time to heal and for your sense of taste to return. Continue to rinse. Warm salt water is ok and a healthy diet with proper vitamins will help your recovery. Do you have any removeable appliances that go in your mouth such as a partial denture? This may require treatment with an anti-fungal medication and if untreated could cause a reoccurrence or hamper your recovery. Your dentist can prescribe a powder to mix with water to use as a soaking solution for dentures. Full dentures can require an anti-fungal paste to be placed inside the dentures to assit healing while continuing to wear these appliances. I hope this is helpful and I would be glad to assist you further. Thank you.
