Great, another problem to add to the list. My daughter has a clear oral thrush issue going on. Her tongue is coated white. I know that's it's likely from the Prednisone, or the antibiotics she's been on. I vaguely recall that she had this 2 yrs. ago while on Prednisone as well, so that is likely the culprit.
Has anyone had this annoying problem, and have ideas on the best way to get rid of it. I bought her a tongue scraper/brush, and I think that did the trick last time. Don't really want to add any more meds to the fray if it can be avoided.
My daughter was diagnosed Feb. 19/07, (13 yrs. old at time of diagnosis), with Crohn's of the Terminal Illium. Initially, 9 weeks of Prednisone, currently taking 2000mgs of Pentasa.
