Thrush and worried
Mar 10, 2014
I have had thrush twice now. Both times I was on back to back antibiotics. The first time I had thrush, my doctor told me to get an hiv test done because it's uncommon for a 22 year old male to have oral thrush. I had the test done, the nurse practitioner said it was negative and the cause for the trash was repeated antibiotics. Well, I was on a z-pack 2 weeks ago. Just Monday I was put on antibiotics (doxycycline) for a sinus infection. Two-three days after taking the medication I start to develop thrush again. I've had no new tattoos or piercings, and the last time I had sex it was protected. Could the HIV have laid dormant?
