Hey there! A few months ago, I got a Monroe(beauty-mark) piercing, and during the healing phase, I was using (I think) it was Colgate alcohol free mouthwash. Well about a week into this I developed a case of thrush. At first I didn't know what it was, and then I had my suspicions. I went to the doc. and he agreed and gave me an antifungal rinse, which didn't work. At the time I was smoking and eating pretty poorly, which I know didn't help my healing. Finally I smartened up and stopped eating sugar, and smoked way less. I also started taking a Yeast Fighter supp that I got from the Natures Market @ Wegmans, and I was using liquid acidopholous, and plain yogurt, and this all seemed to help. It seemed that my thrush was under control. Then haloween came and of course because I was feeling better I basically went back to eating the way I had been. I did stop smoking altogether though and anyways here I am now and the thrush is back and I have been trying to be disciplined about the way I am eating but sometimes I just get so impatient when it seems like it is making no difference. Also my kids and I are going to Fla in Dec and I would like to have this under control by then. I can give up sugar totally, but how should I eat otherwise? I just want to feel better. Any ideas as to how to treat the symtoms and cure thrush would be much appreciated.
Happiness despite misery is a great victory, I think...
