You should first get the diagnosis of oral or esophageal candidiasis confirmed by a specialist, if that is indeed what is going on here. There are several medications that could be given (either orally or intravenously), and that decision is based on extent of infection, laboratory confirmation of a candida infection and antibiotic susceptibility testing to see which medication would be the best one.
