Is thrush in the mouth contagious to a kisssing partner?

Question

Is thrush of the mouth contagious to a kissing partner? I have been taking lozenges by prescription to be complete in 10 days.

Answer

Hi,

Nope. Thrush is "opportunistic," not contagious. It takes the "opportunity" of someone's immune system being deficient or suppressed to manifest itself.
