OT: Feels like my tongue is burnt but I haven't burned it.

I was wondering if anyone might have an idea of whats up with my tongue. For the past few days it feels like I burned it but I can not recall doing so. About a week ago I finished up a 7 day stretch of Amoxicillian followed a few days later by a round of Z-pak and then started prednisone but did not finish that. Is it possible I have thrush? My insurance was just cancelled the other day so I can not afford to pay out of pocket to go to the dr right now. Is there anything I can do at home to try and get rid of it if so? I thought maybe it was from eating a sugar free popsicle almost every night but that doesn't really make sense.

You have Thrush from the antibiotics...it won't go away by itself..call your doc in the AM and tell him that is what you have and you need a nystatin rinse...

Sounds like thrush. This may soud weird but they sell a test kit for vaginal thrush where the yeast infection treatment products are sold.....it gives you a pH range that differentiates bacterial vs yeast. I imagine doing a tongue scraping on it might tell you if you have thrush. The treatment is an oral rinse (prescription). A more holistic approach which might take longer would be to eat/rinse your mouth with an acidopholis preparation. Add a probiotic rich natural yogurt as well. Susan

My son had to do that rinse for oral thrush a few years ago. EXPENSIVE! Check and see if Walmart has it on their $4 plan!!
