oh joy.. I got oral thrush yet once again from my qvar inhaler (i think that's what it's from anyway)... Had to take another 3 days of those anti-yest pills but this time the Dr gave me a mouth wash that's supposed to help get rid of yeast. It taste horrid but seems be keeping the white stuff from coming up in the back of my thraot, thank goodness!!!
I have to say, that when I feel the thrush coming on in the back on my throat, it feels weird, rawish, full, glue filled, thick as if I can't breathe from mucus plugs or something and it freaks me out a little cause I keep thinking it's asthma coming on... within 2 days of the anti-yeast pills though I cn breathe fairly normal again w/o that weird feeling in my throat.
I've only been on qvar for around 3 weeks or so and already have had 2 yeast infections in my throat even though I swish and gargled with water, then water w/50/50 peroxide, etc...
Guess I'm just a little more prone to it or something......
I've been feeling pretty good though the last couple of days asthma wise so I hope I can come off the steriod soon in another 2 weeks or so...
I've been on advair about 3 months and have been fine and this am I noticed two small tiny white spots that hurts. I have been rinsing with hydrogen peroxide, I really would like it to go away. Has anyone ever caught it early and had this work? Wondeirng if I should do that and then skip advair. Has anything like that worked for anyone? Or should I just call my dr.?:confused:
I used Advair for about two years with no problems. Then I started getting thrush. I never did anything differently. I got tired of calling the doc all the time for Diflucan. Now, when I get thrush, I quit the Advair for about a week. I'm not sure it's that good for me since I "really" abuse my albuterol during that time. I'm interested to know if the peroxide works for you. Keep us posted.

Cheri.
well one spot is gone, the other seems to be hanging in. Not to be gross but I sterilized a needle, tore it and put the hydrogen peroxide and will skipped the advair tonight and probably tomorrow morning if the weather changes. Still putting hydgrogen peroxide but I think it only works if it actually gets in there. I have yet to see any other spots appear, cross your fingers! The air was awful today and one of the rare times I felt I needed the resuce inhaler I left it home. Luckily I was able to stay in the rest of the day and my breathing got better but as soon as I went out it was hard to breathe again so I did it when I got home and its in my purse for tomorrow. I got scared!
[QUOTE=michelle80]I believe i may have oral thrush yall... I woke up yesterday morning and saw this white Creamy stuff in the back of my throat... I used to get a strep throat once every year and it disappeared but from reading the symptons and stuff i believe i may have oral thrush....

I was readingup on how you can get it and it scares the heck out of me because it says something about Cancer and Aids and HIV and Gonnerehea Etc.... How did you all get Oral thrush... I am going to the doctor tomorrow.. I have been taking amoxicillian to see if that would help!
Thanks yall

amoxicillian and all antibiotics can and do cause people to get thrush which is a yeast infection. The antibiotics kill bad bacteria in the body which is good and is why we take it BUT it also kills the GOOD bacteria in our body too which is bad because those good bacterias are what balance us out and prevents such things as yeast over growth, etc., and that's how the yeast/thrush comes on.

Were you on any antibiotics before getting thrush?
I've never had it in my life (oral thrush) till I started taking inhaled steriods (they lower your immune system, making you more prone to infection and increasing your chances of getting thrush). I tried the gargling 50/50 solution of water mixed with peroxide 2x daily which was after I did my inhaler but it didn't prevent me from getting thrush again and did not get rid of the thrush when I had it. It DID make my teeth a little whiter though but the taste - yuck!

No need to freak and think you have cancer or aids. There are several things that can cause oral thrush or yeast infections anywhere in the body. Eating too much sugar when your PH balance off could even cause yeast over growth, or even too much beer during that time. Women are more prone to yeast infections due to vaginal issues. I used to get vaginal yeast when I was a teen and took bubble baths. My Doc told me the soap was causing irritation and bringing on my yeast infections. I stopped putting bubbles in my bath and I didn't get them anymore. Now, if my partner and I have too much sex and I get irritated, raw or anything like that then I will end up with a yeast infection.

I seem to be more prone to them for some reason. I get tested for AIDS every year now for the last 14 years and am Negative. I have been tested for diabetes and am normal (i use my moms monitor a few times a day once in a while to check it out). I get a check up once a year and have not found any cancer nor have any symptoms of cancer....... So, believe me, you can get thrush/yeast without the presence of a disease.

DON'T take antibiotics for it, they will make it worse and is one of the things that cause yeast/thrush. Go to your doctor and ask for these pills called "Diflucan". He'll give you 3 pills. If you don't get generic they will cost about $10.00 a pill. Anyway, all you need are 3 of them. You should feel a big difference within 24 hours and it will be gone in 3 to 4 days (or at least it is for me). Diflucan rocks!!!!!!!

Good luck and don't worry...... :)
[QUOTE=Stoney109]i think i have thrush going on. way way under my tongue on the left its sore. also have kinda a dry throat. i started flovent 4 days ago. how do you get rid of thrush? ive been taking acidophilus and rinsing with hydrogen peroxide[/QUOTE]
I tried peroxide for days and days with thrush... useless... Thrush is a pain to get rid so, I'd go to a doc and ask for "diflucan" pills. You get 3 of them and will get rid of it very quickly! I feel better within 24 hours.
I know what you mean about dry throat.. It felt a little thick like I have wet toilet paper stuck in my throat but also felt really dry/horse at the same time.
made me feel like i couldn't breathe well also which for me was the worst part of it.
I got thrush for 1st time 3 days after starting my steroid inhaler (QVAR) and thought i was having another asthma attack because of the horseness and thickness.. Make me feel like my throat was closing up. Well, it was thrush that time. I got rid of it with diflucan that time. The doc told me to use peroxide to gargle with after I did my inhalers and that would help prevent getting thrush.. WRONG. I got it yet again and did diflucan again and got rid of it right away.

This time though the doc wrote me a prescription for a huge bottle of "nistatin" swish & swallow. Nystatin is just like diflucan but it's like mouth wash that you swish around and then swallow. It prevents/cures yeast/thrush in the mouth.
At 1st I used it every time i did my steroid inhaler and then just as needed. I've only felt thrush coming on once since then and as soon as I even thought I was getting it I started the swish and swallow Nystatin stuff for a few days and it went away before it got started. For me, I first just feel a little raw and horse then within 3 to 4 days I have yeast like crazy in the throat and feel terrrrrrrrible.

I'd just tell the Dr when you go in for the Diflucan pills to also give you a good size bottle of "nystatin swish and swallow" so you don't have to keep coming back for thrush. It can be a pain going to the Dr so often.

Take care,

T.

well i stopped the flovent, i dont have asthma, its from the reflux..idk if my prob is thrush or not..its worse now than its been and it hurts real bad and is a sharp numbing pain now on the left side...the sores are all along the base of my gumline. they start way way down (or up) like where the wisdom teeth roots would be, in those 4 corners. i usually get them sometimes in one corner, and they go away in 4-6 days. now, they are in the upper left, and both bottom corners! it started upper left, and lower left, now lower right. idk if it's thrush or not, but i got nystatin swish and swallow..i took one dose earlier..my tongue is also coated white way more than normal. they sores way down in the base of the gumline are dark pink with random white lines going along the base, to the front 2 teeth almost. is this thrush? and if it is, it seems worse, esp my tongue. does it get worse at first? im worried, i just started getting the sharp numbing tingling kinda pain on the left side a little while ago. im about to go to the ER. what do ya think, thrush or something else? again i stopped the inhaler a while ago..just seeing if this could be thrush, because i have a history of a LOT of antibiotics. lmk, thanks!
