I don't think there is any home remedies for thrush. You could try gargling with salt water. I know they will give you this medicine that you gargle in your mouth.....Hope you are feeling better soon...

I found that the manual way was the most effective. If you get a tongue scraper and use it vigilantly, you should get good results.  If not, then there is a rinse called Nystatin (sp.). You should get it under control with either way. 
My daughter was diagnosed Feb. 19/07, (13 yrs. old at time of diagnosis), with Crohn's of the Terminal Illium. Has used Prednisone and Pentasa. Started Imuran (02/09), had an abdominal abscess (12/08). 2cm of Stricture.

Not sure of any home remedies. But since its a yeast infection, you could try some yogurt and just holding it in your mouth for a bit before swallowing.

When I had it they gave me Nystatin (sp), but I am terribly sensitive to taste and I could not tolerate it. After about 3 days of it I finally asked the nurse if there was anything else they could give me and sure enough there was. Diflucan. One pill, once a day, instead of a mouth rinse, three times a day. I was in the hospital on clear liquids and miserable so any little bit made my life better. Good luck.

Yep, try the diflucan. One pill will do the trick.

Salt water gargle, tongue scrapper and cut your sugar intake. Worked for me. I think

I take Nystatin for my thrush. It's not bad tasting for me but it doesn't feel like it's working. I think I may have to try Diflucan.
