Oral Thrush, Oral Thrush Treatment, Miconazole Gel

Oral thrush is a fungal infection that is caused by a group of yeasts known as Candida. 


Oral thrush can cause:

  • White patches in the mouth that can be wiped off, but leave red areas that may bleed slightly

  • Loss of taste or an unpleasant taste in the mouth

  • Redness inside the mouth

  • Cracks in the corners of the mouth

  • A burning sensation in the mouth


The fungus responsible for oral thrush is naturally found in the mouth and digestive system but if they multiply they can cause oral thrush. This can happen for a number of reasons including:

  • Some antibiotics taken for a long period or at a high dose

  • Taking inhaled corticosteroid medication for asthma

  • Dentures - especially if they don’t fit properly

  • Poor oral hygiene

  • Having a dry mouth

  • Smoking

  • Chemotherapy/radiotherapy 


Babies, young children and elderly people are at a higher risk of developing thrush, as well as people with certain conditions including:

  • Diabetes 

  • Iron deficiency

  • Vitamin B12 deficiency 

  • Underactive thyroid


Chemist4U have a range of oral thrush products including medicated gels to help treat oral thrush symptoms.
