Length till oral thrush???
Feb 26, 2004
Hello doctor YOUNG, I was curious; when does oral thrush usually come to people, is it when the cd4 count is pretty low, does this take years after infection generally???
Thank you very much
Response from Dr. Young
Thanks for your question.
Thrush can affect persons with HIV at many levels of CD4-- the risk tends to increase as counts fall below 500 and especially below 200 cells.
The time with which it takes to see thrush varies from person to person, and indeed, other factors (like stress or other infections) can make thrush appear sooner. BY
