|Hiv + Thrush + Geographic Tounge
Jul 26, 1999
I've been reading all the posts about thrush and geographic tounge. I too had them but it went away (i wish the Hiv did too)when I stopped smoking. Just thought you would like to know what helped me.
Response from Dr. Reznik
Thank you for sharing this information with others who read this forum. It is true that smoking is a factor associated with an increased incidence of candidiasis (thrush) in people living with HIV.
Just a thank you note
