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.
