Re-candida sp throat infection
Sep 29, 2010

Thank you doctor for your very valuable advice, as you said we consulted another ENT doctor and he told us to stop the antibiotics or other medication given previously and to only apply a candid mouth paint to the throat area.Additionally he has been taking 2 servings of yoghurt a day.Thanks to God now his fever has gone though still he has a little bit of fatigue.Is this reduction in symptoms because of the med and yoghurt intake.Should we continue with the treatment for some time more.Please advice.

Response from Dr. McGowan

Thanks for the follow up. The topical (mouth rinse) can be stopped after a few days when the spots are gone and he can swallow and taste normally again. The yogurt is a good idea to continue since it can help maintain and restore a normal bacterial flora which may take several weeks after antibiotic use.

Best, Joe
