treatments for thrush in the past were not effective until I was diagnosed with oral herpes. I was prescribed valtrex. After suffering with this condition for about 3 months I finally found relief within a week My tongue and roof of my mouth are red and sore again but no apparent cold sore. Will valtrex help this condition again?
You should visit a doctor and make certain examination to find out the origin of your condition - bacterial or viral. If the problem is caused bu Viruses like Herpes Zoster, Valtrex may be effective for you.
You can also try a mouth rinse found in most drug stores and mass retail stores called Biotene. There is actually an in store coupon in the Walgreen's advertisement this week for $3 off. It does NOT contain alcohol but has the enzymes that normally occur in the mouth. It is worth a try and won't interfere with any medication you may take. It worked really well for me.
