Have YOU ever had thrush in your mouth/throat before?

I just had a baby and had to go back into the hospital on very high doses of IV antibiotics for a uterine infection.

Now I have thrush in my throat b/c of the meds...

How did yours feel? What did you do to cure it? Dr called me in oral niastatin.

  • I didn't have it but my DH did and he was hurting the entire time, they gave him antibiotics for it although I can't remember which one it was.

  • Thrush is a type of yeast infection. Anytime you are on antibiotics, you should also take probiotics to replenish the good bacteria that the antibiotics kill off. Take garlic & probiotic to rebalance your system.
