Question: Does anyone have a home cure that works on oral thrush, caused by the asthma medicine Advair?
I take Advair for my asthma, keep getting oral thrush even though I am brushing my teeth after I use it. Really don’t like to take the prescription medicine the physician prescribes as it only works for a short time.

See your health care bourgeois as soon as doable for consultation.
The bacterial imbalance that follows use of antibiotics might indeed grant other bacteria or fungi to take hold. Those include the candida that cause thrush. But while the “intestinal flora” supplements you mention have shown some benefits at reducing antibiotic-associated diarrhea, they have not been shown to be very effective at treating thrush. You should treat the candida with an effective antifungal medicine, such as oral fluconazole (Diflucan) or nystatin (Mycostatin), The usual bacterial population will return to your mouth and intestinal tract on its own.

Drixoral cold and Allergy, an over-the-counter drug that’s a long-acting combination of the decongestant pseudo-ephedrine and an antihistamine, has few long term side effects. Some of the short-term effects, such as sedation, might even lessen with continued use. But by using a fixed-dose combination drug, you might be taking more than what is needed to treat your allergy symptoms. If sneezing and watery eyes are your main problem, an antihistamine alone would usually suffice, and the decongestant ingredient in Drixoral would be unnecessary. See your doctor, about Advair side effects. I hope this helps you. And good luck.

    To prevent thrush from Advair, just rinse and gargle with plain old water after inhaling.
