ive been positive for a year and half and i recently developed thrush, what medical treatement will relieve me of this
Response from Dr. Henry
Receiving HIV treatment which results in an increase in CD4+ T-cell counts (immune system improvement) is the optimal way to ultimately prevent thrush (oral yeast infection) from occuring. There are topical medications (Nystatin liquie/clotrimazole troches) and pills (such as fluconazole) that can usually help clear thrush up. KH
Night sweats/thrush with normal T cell levels
