I have a good case of thrush. I have the swish and spit meds from my GI but I was wondering if this stuff can also ne in my entire GI tract? Is there a systemic medication I should look into?

Hi Redspot . . . I've used the Nystaton (sp?) which was a swish/swallow or swish/spit . . . depending on the docs orders.

Yes, you can have yeast overgrowth in your gut. That's why so many Crohn's patients take probiotics or eat yogurt (and other cultured products like keefer). The live cultures in those products keep yeast from overtaking your gut.

I hope your meds work fast for you.

Rj, if you are on Nystatin medicine, you can swish & swallow. Another good med for oral & systemic thrush is diflucan.

So sorry to hear you have to deal with this, this was the worse part of taking the antibiotics for me, just made everything taste horrible as if having crohns issues wasn't bad enough. I started taking Acidophilus twice daily which really helped along with that swish stuff. I feel like the probiotic worked better though.
