Re: [IP] Thrush--yuck!


  I'm not diabetic, my son is.  But I'm half way through the Nystatin for
thrush.  Mine was so bad last week that I could not eat or drink anything.
I've been sick for two weeks and the crud I had went to my chest and
reactivated my asthma that I have not had to deal with for almost 4 years.
Well, in using the one inhaler a few times last week caused the thrush in my

Nystatin suspension swiggle in the mouth four times a day.  I have to
actually swallow it as well because the thrush is way down my throat as
well.  Also, yogurt with the active cultures will help increase the recovery
and help prevent any other yeast infection to occur...so I have been told!

Good luck!
