Question: Thrush….?
I was diagnosed with a sinus infection and bronchitis. I was on antibiotics for 4 days. That was last week. Now the back of my tongue and throat is bothering me. Could it be Thrush? I felt the back of my tongue and I don’t feel bumps.
is Thrush common? or something I should be worried about.

It could be as thrush often follows after taking a course of anti-biotics. I would get the physician to check it out.

    Thrush (oropharyngeal candidiasis, or OPC) is a yeast infection that develops in the mouth and throat and on the tongue.

    Thrush is most common in newborns, infants, and older adults, but it can occur at any age. In healthy newborns and infants, thrush is usually not a serious problem and is easily treated and cured.

    Thrush occurs when a yeast called candida grows out of control. Candida normally is present in small amounts in the mouth and on other mucous membranes. However, under certain circumstances, candida can grow rapidly, causing thrush.

    Thrush can be a recurring problem for people who have chronic illnesses or who take medications that impair the body’s ability to fight infection (weakened immune system). Since these people have difficulty fighting infections, the fungus that causes thrush can spread throughout the body, causing life-threatening blood or organ infections. See a physician if it persists.

    Thrush usually has a white coating, but it is possible because of the antibiotics. You would really have to see your doctor to know for sure.

    Possible after antibiotics, it can develop as yeast: vaginal infection or Trush, in the mouth. See Physician immediately, there is prompt relief, with Diflucan, or what ever your Physician finds best to prescribe. Follow directions. Get well soon.
