hi, my tongue when i first started treatment looked like thrush. i wasn’t able to brush it off and the only way to clear it was to use Nystatin powder on it. that cleared it 100% for about a few hours. now, in the morning, it is white with coating, but i am able to brush all of it off with just toothpaste. it’ll turn white again later, or greenish, but it’s a much more thin coating. sometimes it’ll stay pink in most spots for a while, or i’ll have a tiny bit of white just in the back. any thoughts? I’ve been on some form of diet for almost 5 months, but a lot of that time i was eating fruit. Do those who are rid of candida, still sometimes get a white tongue? One theory i had is, it is dead candida cells from the gut. it seems like when i take more antifungals, i get a thicker white tongue in the AM. Thanks!

You just need to reduce the infestation further and then the thrush eventually goes away (but may come back occasionally). How you are feeling and where are you at in your treatment? How is your leaky gut?

It sounds like you still need to be taking some antifungals. You also might want to look into tea tree oil mouthwash. It has helped my lips a bit, teatree oil is a natural antifungal and the mouthwash isn’t too pricey.January 25, 2013 at 2:52 am #95390
hmmm my second post was in response to a comment posted, but the person must have come back and erased it. she was suggesting i boost my immune system.
I am feeling good. Candida never made me feel sick. maybe a long time ago. but I started treating it hoping to make my food intolerances go away. as far as i know i still have them, and still have leaky gut. i started the s. boullardi because my body was tired of antifungals. had been on them for many months including nystatin and sf722. my thought was do s boullardi for a while, and then go back to antifungals. i think I am different from most people on this board, in that i was never physically sick from candida. although looking back, i probably was a bit at certain points in my life. but i was diagnosed by a doctor when i sought treatment of food allergies. i have just about finished the nystatin he prescribed me, so i guess my question is, how does one know when they should stop treating, if they’ve never been sick? I suppose most people decide to stop treating when they feel better. perhaps I need to wait until my leaky gut is cured. but does that mean I need to stay on SF722 until all of my food intolerances go away? that could be months. thanks everyone!

I don’t know if I am sick from Candida or not. I know that my lip rash and swelling was caused by candida because the Nystatin cream made it better. I do know that I have other problems that might be helped by getting rid of Candida in my body. Besides, it has to help to get off sugar, huh? 🙂
