I was wondering if any other healthy people get oral thrush? I am a 22 year old female who has been getting thrush for 4 years.
My story started when I was 18 and getting ready to graduate high school. My doctor put me on a 3 pill dose of Zithromax to treat bronchitis. On the day of the second dose, I threw up immediately afterward and ended up getting oral thrush for the first time.
Ever since then I get thrush about once or twice a year. Usually it's because I'm on an antibiotic but sometimes I just get it when I'm really stressed out with school and everything. I once also got it from taking a pill that had a side effect of dry mouth.
Currently, I feel that I am getting it again. This time I'm on antibiotics to treat a swollen lymph node. My doctor has scared me and told me that I need to be tested for HIV, however I know that this is not the case. I don't believe I have any other auto immune disease either because I rarely even catch a cold or any other infection.
So I'm wondering if anyone else who is perfectly healthy gets oral thrush at times? I know there are conditions where its constant but thats not the case with me either. It's just once a year usually. My mother thinks it is still all because of the first time I ever got it from Zithromax. She believes it just stays dorment in my system. Any suggestions?
