STRESS....AND THRUSH
Dec 16, 2003

Hi doctor Horwath,

I was wondering if stress causes thrush, I heard that it did but wasn't sure, if stress causes thrush; would the thrush caused by stress still bleed when you brushed it?

THANK YOU

Response from Dr. Horwath

Thrush is a Candidal infection, which is caused by failure of the immune system to protect against fungal infections. It is not caused by stress.

However, stress can contribute to health problems in a number of ways. Severe stress can contribute to insomnia, exhaustion, and other problems that affect one's health.
