It was brought to my attention that I advised you wrong. A 3 month post exposure is conclusive not two months. Thrush is not HIV specific and in most cases is brought on my mouth wash and the use of antibiotics. Thrush is not a sign of recent HIV infection and the only way to know that you have thrush is to be tested and diagnosed by a doctor or a dentist.
You have to let a Dr. decide if you have thrush or not. I was 100% convinecd I did and after seeing 2 Dr's they looked at me like I was nuts. I even injured myself to go to Urgent Care on a weekend when my Dr's office was closed so I could get another Dr's opinion. Still have a funny taste in my mouth but that's probably from all of the inappropriate tongue scraping I put myself through over the last several weeks!!
Bottom line - go to a Dr as only he/she can tell if it is Thrush and can do so by just looking in your mouth.
