WIPE AWAY THRUSH -- WHEN DOES IT COME BACK?
Jun 11, 2000

IF YOU WIPE AWAY THRUSH WHEN DOES IT COME BACK? COULD IT BE INSTANTLY? 5 MINUTES? A DAY? A WEEK? THANK YOU.

Response from Dr. Reznik

This is not the easiest question to answer, but I imagine if you wiped away an area of thrush and were not on any medications to address this infection, it would take about 24 hours for the plaques to return. This is just an educated guess and not based on fact.

Hope this helps!

DR
