Question: How long does it take to cure Thrush?
I got thrush from a current dose of antibiotics.

A day or two ago, I started taking clotramizole mouth paint for it. I apply it after each meal.

I am still getting new thrush spots on my tongue.

How long will it take for this to go away?
Also, I am negative for HIV & blood sugar disorders / diabetes.

There are two goals when treating oral thrush in adults. The first is to improve your immune system’s capability to function. For example, in diabetics, good control of diabetes might be enough to clear the infection without other treatment. Second is to directly treat the infection. For this purpose, your physician might prescribe an antifungal mouthwash or lozenges to suck on. These are usually used for 5-10 days. If they don’t work, other medication might be prescribed.
If the infection has spread throughout your body or you have HIV/AIDS, stronger medications might be used, such as ketoconazole (Nizoral) or fluconazole (Diflucan).
