Thrush in the esophagus
Oct 19, 2005
What are the complications that can happen when thrush moves into the esophagus?
Response from Dr. Pierone
The main complication is difficulty and pain with swallowing. This can become quite severe and typically is readily treatable with Diflucan tablets. In unusual cases there is Candida (the fungus that causes thrush) which is resistant to Diflucan and other therapies may be needed. Best of luck to you!
