I am a healthy adult women who regularly exercises and watches what she eats. Brushes and flosses every day. I got really sick about a month ago with a cold and shortly after that I noticed something in my mouth was not right. Currently my tongue is burning with little red bumps towards the front, constant urge to swallow, white on the back of tongue, swollen gums (looks to be just at the tooth line), swollen taste buds on the back of tongue. I believe I have either Oral Thrush or Oral yeast. Since I have been healthy in the past is this going to be something that is going to be hard to get rid of? I have gone to the doctors on several occasions and they tell me nothing is wrong. I don't want this to get more out of control. I am currently taking Diflucan (which I have read horrible things about) and it doesn't seem to be curing my problem. I need some advice as to where to turn at this point. I want this to go away so I can get back to a normal life. It's been about a month since I have noticed the issue. The internet is making me a little scared!
