I would call the doctor.  When I had thrush, I just called my GI and told him.  He called in a prescription for me, and I just picked it up.

i have a thread going called "how to beat thrush" theres a lot of good info there. usually to get rid of it my doc gives me a script for diflucan (fluconazole) it knocks it right out.

My daughter got rid of the thrush (from Flagyl mixed with Entocort) by taking nystatin, orally, 4x day for two weeks. Avoided all sources of sugar for a few days (including fruit and fruit juices), because yeast loves sugar! And no bread made with yeast, either.
