Hi Annie

You could try eating natural LIVE yoghurt before trying any over the counter medicines, but if you go to your local chemists they can sell you products over the counter too and they are very effective.

If it's a recurring problem eating live yogurts regularly can eventually 'cure' you.

If you have to take antibiotics for any reason, that is a good time to re-kindle your yoghurt therapy if you have lapsed, because anti-biotics are a nuisance for causing thrush.

Take care :love:

I have to say I found out just how allergic to dairy I am when I tried the natural yoghurt remedy and applied it where the sun doesn't shine.My poor bits swelled up so much I ended up with two bottoms instead of one:hehe:

Hi Annie, yes, thrush is common to lupus, at least that's what I have been told,while I was in my Dermy's chair with a mouth full of thrush. He gave me something to swish , then spit, in my mouth, it worked, but I don't remember what it was, I am so sorry. But it is good that you have it when your dr. can see it, he will see exactly what you are dealing with.
