I have had symptoms for a year. I have been to several doctors to get a diagnosis-general
physician, periodontist, dentist, internist, immunologist and allergy specialist.
My symptoms are white coating on the mouth, itching, reactions to certain foods like
bread, cheese, alcohol. I have white lines across my cheeks. I think it is oral candida. I went to a doctor recently who thinks it is oral lichen planus. I have been prescribed betamethasone. I think this could make my symptoms worse if it is candida. My fiancee has the same symptoms. The doctor says oral lichen planus is not contagious. So, it is not likely that this diagnosis is correct. Has anybody else gone through this? Any advise on who to go to for a diagnosis for oral candida? Thanks to anyone with information.

  • Hi, Have you gone to the doctor? If so, what has the doctor advised?I have tried some anti-fungals and Nystatin. It seems to help for a whilebut it comes back. I think we should try a yeast free diet and I have readsome homeopathic alternatives. Let's work together. I am so tired of this and looking forward to a solution.

  • Google a product called THree Lac for Candida. I had systemic candida and had fungus on my face and neck head and hands...I went to Dr's and dermatolgist and no one could help with creams and prescriptions. THe three lac was a life saver. I was always tired and my skin always itched. Three lac has cleared up the fungus and I have more energy now than I have had in years. It certainly won't hurt to try. You need to order some right away.I have had symptoms for a year.
