I have been on Advair for asthma for over 10 years and this is the first time I have gotten thrush from it. A whole mouthfull
Sore gums and cheeks, even my lips affected. Even more reason for me to get off the crap. Makes me mad the allergist I saw wouldn't give me another Rx to try that was non-steroidal, said I was on the lowest dose of Advair as it was
: now looks like I'll have to make yet another appt. to try another Rx. Seeing a naturpath also to try and get asthma/allergies under control.
I started the nystatin rinse on Thurs night, 3 times a day since then so it's been 3.5 days of treatment. At first I had tried a GSE rinse as directed from Dr. Jay Gordon's website but oooooh it stung so bad and my mouth hurt the rest of the night I could barely talk or smile.
My gums are better, and inside cheeks I think are getting better however I still see some red spots right inside my lip on the corners. My lips are a little bit red on the outside, and really dried out overnight. I am not putting anything on them in fear of 'holding in' the fungus.
If you had to take nystatin, how long did it take to work for you? A few days, a week? It's been hard to floss and brush my teeth, and foods taste bland. I took probiotics once but kept forgetting after that.
