i constantly get thrush in my mouth (a yeast infection, white patches) since im on prednisone. i have trued the nystantin mouthwash but that does not prevent it or take it away. the only thing that does cure it is diflucan (fluconazole) pills that you would take for a normal yeast infection. problem is i get it like every couple of weeks and its not good to take that much diflucan. can anyone think of things that may help that are no an Rx? i tired mouthwash too but that doesnt help at all. im not a huge yougurt eater but i have been drinking that danactive immunity drinks to see if maybe thatll help.
thanks in advance if you have any ideas
