I've had problems all my life with a white film on my gums, inside my cheeks, on my tongue and sometimes behind my teeth. If for some reason I'm unable to brush this film off, it becomes thicker and more rubbery, and eventually sore underneath. The only time it's looked patchy or like cottage cheese was when I was a baby, and again a few years ago. Both times it was diagnosed as thrush, and both times I was given medication, to take care of the patches and sores, but I've still been left with this even film in my mouth. I've been tested for HIV, several immune disorders, dry mouth and diabetes, but to no avail. Any ideas? Thanks, Aimee.
