    I have white stuff which I think is thrush in my mouth on my tongue,roof of mouth,cheeks,side of mouth and now it looks like it's starting at the back of my throat too.I also have white creamy discharge down below too.My mouth is so sore I can't eat or drink anything.For the last few weeks I have been waking up at night drenched in sweat.I have had a temperature for two weeks and it won't go away.When I get out of bed I get so out of breath that I have to go back.Can thrush go away on its own?My mom made an appointment with a doctor because she's worried but I get really nervous at the doctors and don't really want to go.Is there anything I can do to make it go away on its own or lower my temperature(think I've tried everything though).Please help.

    Hi this is Maria again.The doctor rang my mom with my blood results and she said that they aren't normal.She said that my white blood cells are extremely high 101,000 with blasts??? and my red blood cells and my platelets are very low.She wants me and my parents to come in and talk to her tomorrow morning and she said that I will have to go to hospital for tests.I am really scared.I don't want to go to hospital.Is it bad to have high white cells and low of the other cells?what does it mean?Do you normally go to hospital because of thrush??why do I need tests.I am scared that I have something bad because my mom has been crying since the doctor rang.Please can someone who has thrush tell me that this is all normal.Please please?

    Hello, ages ago the small glands around my nipple got white dots in the middle of them which if you apply light pressure onto them they will release a long white strand like a white head, this will then inflame the whole area and make it really red. Then in about a minute they will have the white stuff back in them some of the spots now have gone into scabs which looks horrific if i leave the spots they don't go away and if i squeeze them they don't go away.

    For as long as i remember, i have had a rather strange white coating on the back of my tongue and when i looked further into the back of my mouth, there have been small but very visible lumps/spots at the sides and back of the tongue and even bigger lumps at the centre of my tongue. I tend to get bad breath and i can scrape off this 'white stuff' and it smells. is this normal?

    Hello, I also had that, it was because i was not brushing my teeth regularly. Its probably a build up of dead skin cells. It could also be from dehydration. A more concerning cause of this could be thrush or candidal infection which is a form of fungus. you might want to go check with a doctor just in case and if it is thrush. All of these should be solved relatively simply :) a course of medication suited to your symptoms, I wouldnt worry about it ^_^

    I'm 31 years old, Male and have developed spots on the top of my lip which won't go away. When I touch my lips, the spots are hard and the colour of the spots is white. I have never had these spots on my lip and started to get the spots in Febraury 2013. Have been to my local GP who told me to use Daktarin Orel Gel but this did not work. I then tried Nystatin Oral Suspension BP buy again this did not work. My GP does not know what the spots are. Please could somebody help me and advise what these spots are and how get rid of them. Thank you

    I have had oral thrush for over 4 weeks now. I have health anxiety and I held a small toys battery casing in my mouth whilst i changed the batterys as had my hands full, so just put the plastic bit off the toy between my teeth, went to take out batterys (cheap AA ones from poundshop) and saw one of them had leaked. I could taste something mettalic in my mouth, dropped everything and rinsed with water and milk several times. A while later my lips were tingling and my tongue was sore and i was shaken. 24 hrs later i phoned NHS direct who said I would be fine. Went Drs on The Monday and broke down in tears, when she looked she said I had oral thrush. Took Nystatin, following week no better, took Daktarin oral gel, felt a lot better but could see white stuff at back of tongue, left it a week went back took Fluconazole and its just as bad as it first was. My tongue has white creamy stuff at back and its white at front but cant scrape it off and the corners of my mouth are hurting a little, i have good oral hygiene. When i went Drs yesterday the dr said there was nothing else i could be given and that im probably dehydrated (front of tongue white and sore) and there is still thrush at the back. Dont know what to do I had my bloods done in September and my iron was at 14?? Taking iron tablets daily, getting ulcers and bad spots...... Dont know what to do. I didnt eat bread for a week or anything with yeast in and took corsodyl etc whilst taking fluconazole. P.S went to a&e after was told by dentist to after the battery incident, was 10 days after id done it they said they wouldnt see me and numerous pharmacists have said a little bit of battery acid from AA batterys wouldnt do much harm ..... I dont know what to do

    Hi there, I gave someone oral sex about 3 1/2 weeks ago but about 2 and a half weeks ago my throat was hurting any time i tried to swallow, my left ear was very painful too. About a week later i had a look in my throat and I could see white things on my tonsils, this is what started to worry me! I went to the doctors and he told me it was a bacterial infection and gave me a 10 day course of penicillin. But because I was so worried i got tested for chlamydia and gonorrhea at a brook clinic. I still haven't had my bloods tested though. Since noticing the white spots, i have became VERY ill. I haven't been eating, my mouth is dry every single morning and I am waking up very early in the morning. I have also got mouth ulcers now. I also still struggle to swallow, not from pain but i feel very phlegmy in the back of my throat. I also feel like my lymph nodes have swollen. I don't know if i'm worrying for nothing and anxiety is getting the best of me but I would really like some sort of reassurance and advice as i'm scared I may have HIV :( Oh and I haven't suffered with any skin rash, i'm hoping this is a good sign? Thanks x

I drink water a lot, and chew sugar free gum, but it don't seem to help. it can make me feel a bit shy, I always try to wipe the corners of my mouth before I speak, so people cannot see, the white corners of my mouth. I don't know if it is because, I am a shy person and nervous in crowds, what can I do to treat this? please help

    I was diagnosed 5 days ago with oral thrush and was given a mouth rinse to swish and spit out. I also had a water infection 3 weeks ago and was given antibiotics to clear it up and Im thinking that may have started it, I also have a weak immune system. Ive noticed since yesterday that it looks to be getting worse, not only are the spots white but i now have red lesions on the sides of my mouth, Im leaving for holidays soon and even tho the Dr gave me enough to take along with me Im scared Im gonna get worse :-( Is it normal to still be getting more spots after 4 days of rinsing?

    When I got herpies in my mouth last year it was like having loads of mouth ulcers. It was so painful. I didn't already carry the common cold sore virus and my girlfriend did have it, even though it was dormant in her, I must have picked it up during oral sex and now I get cold sores every now and again, I didnt get them before. If you have got oral herpies, it might be very painful, but the good news is, once you've had it bad once it won't hit back that bad again. you'll probs just get mouth ulcers from time to time!

    Yes it may be a symptom of chlamydia. Spicy foods can aggravate the condition

    White spots in the mouth can be a symptom of chlamydia. Chlamydia is highly infectious and can cause damage internally.

    I was recently diagnosed with behcets, I Am 21 years old and have had 5 outbreaks in 8 months. Each outbreak seems to be worse each time. It starts rapidly in the same spots every time. Mouth genitals mouth and hands. It's feels at first as if I'm being stabbed with thousands of needles and over the course of a few days my mouth is so bad I cannot even drink milk without being in extreme agony. I cannot walk because of the sores on my genitals. They are bigger than a 50 cent coin piece each and ooze blood and puss. It almost looks like a brown recluse bit me on my junk and my finger and mouth. Once it peaks my mouth hurts so bad I cannot talk. My mouth will start bleeding from my teeth rubbing against my tounge. Vicodin doesn't help at all. Nothing does. Has anyone ever expierenced it this bad? I just want it all to end. Even steroids aren't helping.

    My son was diagnosed at age 19 with Behcets. Severe mouth ulcers, groin ulcers and on his face. Monthly infusions of Remicade have seen to be the best treatment with occasional prednisone in between.

    I used to get relief from prednisone but it caused Cushing's so we had to stop... Have you tried colchicine or enbrel? I was on all of these before my doctors even considered Remicaid... Check out the American Behcet's Disease Association website, they give alot of treatment ideas, can help find doctors in your area and you can connect with other Behcet's people who can give you some ideas based on what worked for them. Good luck

    Since I've turned 18 I've been dealing with back acne, maybe not as intense as most but it's still all over the back of my shoulds and some on my chest & kinda lighty on my belly, not always big spots but loads of little ones & some big ones. I am a female, I've always tried to find the right products for my skin, especially my face, as my skin seems a lot different to most. I do break out here and there with small white spots near my mouth area & chin mainly, as I'm really sensetive & I guess you could say problematic also.. I've never really had facial acne, I do get hormonal spots & some spots here and there but I wouldn't exactly class it as acne, like I would my back. What do you suggest? -- Oily/combination sensetive skin, I have big pores.

Some by my tonsils and more clusters on the roof of my mouth and under my tongue. I have had mouth ulcers badly before (usually during my period) but this seems to be the most yet! My doctors have been very unhelpful. The pain is terrible and I can't eat. Please advise.

    I use difflam which is a painkilling oral rinse.It numbs the area and makes it easier to eat.

    Have you ever explained what the white spots on our teeth are? I have to hide them constantly by brushing my a bit yellow teeth to make them more white to blend them in... I hate them because it just looks off... I had them for years in my childhood and they remind me of braces but in a white colour (as amusing as it sounds). I noticed new ones on my molar teeth over the years... I'm hoping its not serious. Everyone tells me its from calcium deficiency but then they said your eating the wrong foods... What are those white spots? Are they normal? :( What are those spots???
