Hello doctor. What happens if oral candidiasis is left untreated? If there is nothing wrong with my immune system, will it spread? Is it dangerous? I got it from using an inhaler. please suggest me
Hi Priya garu, Oral candidiasis is also called Oral thrush. It is a condition in which the fungus Candida albicans accumulates on the lining of the mouth. Candida is a normal organism in the mouth, but sometimes it can overgrow and cause symptoms. Although oral thrush can affect anyone. It is a minor problem if you are healthy, but if you have a weakened immune system, symptoms may be more severe and difficult to control. Symptoms that include Oral candidiasis are creamy white lesions on the tongue, inner cheeks, and sometimes on the roof of the mouth, gums and tonsils; slightly raised lesions with a cottage cheese-like appearance, redness, burning or soreness that may be severe enough to cause difficulty eating or swallowing, slight bleeding if the lesions are rubbed or scraped etc. In severe cases, usually related to cancer or a weakened immune system from HIV/AIDS, the lesions may spread downward into the esophagus to the stomach that leads to difficulty swallowing. Oral thrush is more likely to occur in infants and older adults due to reduced immunity. It may increase in such conditions like, untreated diabetes, vaginal infections, long term use of antibiotics and corticosteroids etc. Homoeopathy is an excellent option to treat Oral candidiasis naturally without any side effects.
