Oral Thrush in Adults


Thrush Treatment »

The symptoms of oral thrush, just like the symptoms of thrush in men and women, can be very obvious. These symptoms include:

  • Pain experienced in the mouth, especially a burning sensation on the tongue
  • A bitter or salty taste in the mouth
  • Difficulty in swallowing
  • White patches in the mouth that can be wiped off, but persist in returning
  • Slight or severe crack in the corners of your mouth
  • Soreness throughout the whole of your mouth

The symptoms of oral thrush can be frustrating and irritating, affecting your day to day life such as eating, drinking and talking. It is important that you seek medical attention fairly quickly if you think you are suffering from oral thrush, as the infection is known to only persist and worsen, although in some cases the condition can clear up naturally. Just like the other strains of thrush, it is mostly simple and easy to treat. If you wear dentures and develop the thrush infection, you might experience soreness or redness around the areas where your dentures have been. This is nothing to particularly worry about, but it can be extremely uncomfortable.
