Went to the Dr's on Monday, was diagnosed with thrush, a bacterial AND viral infection (needless to say, I've been EXTREMELY ill and have slept more hours than I can even count.) The Dr did not take an oral swab to diagnose the oral Trush, he did not do anything. After listening to my lungs he asked to look in my mouth and quickly said "Ahh dry mouth", um yes, I had a dry mouth because you asked me to inhale/exhale 10 times quickly. Obviously I'm going to have a dry mouth. But apparently, in his books, that's Thrush. After 3 days of swishing the nasty insanely sweet Nystatin 3x a day, I have developed MULTIPLE sores in my mouth and now they are progressing onto my lips that are EXTREMELY painful. Is THIS finally Thrush? Didn't have it before - but now I suddenly do? I'm so sick, haven't eaten since last Friday (7 days ago) and finally now I am feeling a slight appetite but do not wish to eat as even water makes these sores sting. UNIMPRESSED TO THE FULLEST.
