If had thrush, you would know it. It is not a dry mouth. Candidiasis in the mouth are white patches that look like cottage cheese or SEVERE red spots. It is usually accompanied by nausea, a sore throat with severe pain when swallowing. And it happens to those whose immune system is already compromised by HIV, usually not during ARS.

As for the dehydration, you are obviously under a severe amount of has your diet been lately? Enough water intake?

The best advice anyone can give is to see your Doc and have a complete physical.

Good luck to you....
