when the white stuff can be scraped off, it is thrush. thrush is caused by the fungus candida. this is very common even in the non-HIV population. people who have been on antibiotics and diabetics often get this. however, if the white stuff CAN NOT be scraped off and has a hard texture, this is called leukoplakia. this is often a sign of HIV/AIDS.
Ah, well that clears it up mostly.
But Oral fungal Candida is till a technical symtom of ARS correct?
nope. ARS symptoms are typically fever, night sweats, diarrhea, a rash, but not candida.
