Thrush or whatever
      #37354 - 07/23/02 09:35 AM

i'm going to see a dentist tomorrow anyway i have this problem, my mouth produces a white mucus which is dense and foamy, it can appear anywhere, near the tonsils, on the upper gums, it is not adhese to the mucosal surface and i can wipe it away with my finger, it is not a plaque, it's a sort of foam, has anyone ever experienced this problem? I smoke a lot and lately i've been drinking quite a lot. It doesn't look exactly like candida, it doesn't appear on my palate. What could it be?

I had exactly the same for a few weeks during my own months of madness and jumped to all sorts of crazy conclusions. It got very thick and for a while I had to constantly swallow it down, with difficulty.

Funnily enough, I've just been through a period of stress worse than anything since my window period and lo and behold, the same thing has returned! Still don't know what it is, maybe a combo of stress, drinking and smoking for us both, but I know from experience it'll go away and I know it's nothing to do with HIV (unless that girl I kissed a few weeks ago.........or maybe I'm a 30 monther after all..........aargh!!!!!.........)

As a fellow smoker, I get that often especially in the morning. My dentist says he sees that a lot in smokers.
