Hi, Sealy52!

I'm also new to asthma, and I also have fibro and multiple antibiotic allergies, so you aren't alone in all this.

I haven't dealt with oral thrush personally, but I've heard that using a spacer or careful inhaler technique can reduce the amount of medicine deposited in the mouth. I've also heard that hydrogen peroxide mouthwash is a good disinfectant.

One more thing--are you on any medications that have dry mouth as a side effect? Dry mouth can also lead to thrush, so if you are taking antihistamines, tricyclic antidepressants, or any other medicines that dry out your mouth, you might want to talk to your doctor about changing them.
