I’ve had oral thrush for over a month now, this is easily the worst thing that’s ever happened to me. I got the thrush from taking an antibiotic for two weeks during a bad sinus infection. I now wish I never took the antibiotics, this is awful! It goes away and then comes back within a day. I have been on nystatin and Diflucan for a month, but the best results I’ve seen is from doing home remedies, like hydrogen peroxide and coconut oil.

I am so grateful as my life was miserable before I started taking the Lady Soma candida cleanse for thrush. I have been taking it for a month now, not every day as it is not necessary. The over-the-counter medicines stopped working. The doctor told me simply that some women suffer from it regularly and there is nothing that can be done. Lady Soma works though and it clears thrush within days.

I have been having mouth thrush for a while now and it just started as a very small spot but now they are all over my mouth n even the tongue. It is so stressful when I wake up every day with pain. I have used so many medicines, gone to different hospitals but no change. Right now I am under fluconazole and my hope is to get well and go back to normal. It is the third month now. I am stressed and don't know what to do because it is even on my throat.

My husband has a feeding tube and has been suffering from oral thrush. He is also a Parkinson’s patient. We have tried fluconazole and lozenges to no avail. He has had it for several months and cannot get rid of it.
