There are several ways to help manage your oral thrush (also known as oral candidiasis, an overgrowth of the Candida albicans fungus in your mouth). If you are generally healthy and have gotten thrush after taking antibiotics, eating yogurt with live active bacteria cultures may help restore the normal balance of bacteria in your mouth and get rid of the thrush.
Over-the-counter acidophilus pills may also work. Other things you may try include rinsing several times a day with a 3% hydrogen peroxide solution that's been diluted. using a soft toothbrush to minimize irritation and pain, rinsing with warm saltwater, and taking good care of your mouth by brushing at least twice a day and flossing every day.
If you have diabetes, maintaining good control of your blood sugar levels is a great way to deal with thrush on a daily basis. Without a lot of sugar to feed off of, the Candida will be less likely to thrive in your mouth. If your immune system is weak, daily management of thrush may involve using antifungal lozenges or mouthwashes. In severe cases, your doctor may want you to take oral antifungal medication.
