Erythematous Candidiasis
Nov 28, 2001

Dear Dr. Reznik, Can erythematous candidiasis be confused with other diseases? If yes , What are these Diseases?


Response from Dr. Reznik

There are several conditions which can be considered in a differential diagnosis of erythematous candidiasis including but not limited to trauma to the hard and/or soft palate; pizza or other hot food burns; food allergies; toothpaste allergies, erosive lichen planus, etc.

Diagnosis of erythematous candidiasis is usually based on clinical appearance and underlying medical history.

Take care,


oral ulcers and the influence of stress
