I used arm and hammer baking soda and peroxide toothpaste, brushed my tongue and made a mouth wash of 50% water and 50% peroxide. cleared it up in a couple days. Couldn't stand the magic mouth wash.

If you have thrush, using a liquid prescription called Nystatin or a pill called Dyflucan will clear it up. Both need a prescription from your Doctor. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info!

FYI thrush is caused by the same fungus that causes vaginal yeast infections. Therefore it must be treated with a fungicide like Nystatin or Difulcan. Magic mouthwash is used to control mouth and esophageal pain.

I used to suffer horribly after treatment with tiny white sores in my mouth and throat. Hurt...brought me to tears. Prescribed Nystatin liquid...horrid to administer. Then the answers came!

Fluconazole 200MG tablets.

At first, we followed directions, taking the first of 7 tablets right after treatment. Still got hit. So we figured it out. My treatments were Monday through Wednesday. On Tuesday morning, I took the first of 7 tablets, following through with the next 6 on the next 6 days. Never had the tiniest spot in my mouth or throat again! I told my onc what I was doing and he approved.

One less yucky thing to deal with! :-)

Thanks so much. My dad hasn't experienced thrush or mouth sores yet. He just received his first Taxotere infusion this week, but I wanted to be prepared. This site has been a wealth of information for me.
