Erythematous candidiasis
      #198805 - 07/05/06 01:21 AM

guys just aquestion on this.. i have had a few low/no risk exposures, i took a oraquick test 4+ months after exposure it was negative. i also the past month have started smoking weed and drinking alot..

but basically i get these red spots in my mouth from time to time, its always on the roof.. and it goes away after a day by itself.. then it comes back maybe in a week in a diff location and goes away again..

does this sound like Erythematous candidiasis? from what i have read it is unlikly it is because it usually doesnt just resolve by itself within a day or so...

i dont have any other symptoms really just a couple lymph nodes on my neck seem weird but maybe i had them from before..

any advice is appreciated

That doesn't sound like thrush (which is the same thing as erythematous candidiasis). It sounds like you're simply irritating the lining of your mouth. Thrush, particularly in someone with HIV, is unlikely to come and go that quickly.

It may be glossitis, does it burn or anything?
