A lot of people think they have thrush when they don't really have it. Are you certain that's what you got, or that's what it looks like to you?

hi

regards from india

If you tested negative at 3 months, it is unlikely your trhush is caused by HIV and yes antiboitics do cause thrush. You are HIV negative...

Goodluck

Thrush can be caused by any number of things and is very common in everyone at one time or another. Many things like saliva glands that are not producing much, antibiotic use, steroidal use (even those inhalers and sinus sprays the doctor prescribes), can bring it on. Many people read the information on thrush and do not seem to see all of the other causes, only the part that says weakened immune system and HIV so they associate it with that, but there are many other reasons a person gets it.

i appreciate the response yes you make alot of sense with saying that. because it's an hiv issue. it's so easy to overlook other causes
