Pimples and mouth thrush

Pimples and mouth thrush.

Oh, I am just sooooooo stunning.

Please, anyone who's had either of these SX chime in!

Every week I get new and increasingly BIZARRE symptoms.  (Tonight is shot 34 of 72).

The sore red bump on the bridge of the nose near my left eye is, the NP says, either a pimple or an embedded follicle or something.  

Cracks on the corners of the lips are mouth thrush.

If this keeps up I definitely WON'T need a Halloween costume.   :(

Sounds lovely, doesn't it?

I heard nystatin is good for mouth thrush.  There's also been recommendations that thalidomide works well.  

Check them out.

Thrush --- ACK...

During TX --- I had A thrush like coating all over the inside of my mouth --- closing off the back of throat area --- turned out to be Strep BAD BAD BAD...

So --- when they thought was thrush they gave me this antibacterial/antibiotic/icky nasty whatever concoction... It worked tho... Like a charm.

I'll go ask the doc to email me what it is in there - and I'll type it out...

I am absolutely serious about the thalidomide.  It is being used with good success for mouth ulcers.  Well, you say you have mouth thrush which might not be quite the same but I included it just in case.  One thing for sure is that you are not going to get pregnant while on tx, so that's the major contraindication out of the way.

It's a swish and spit combo of:

Nystat/Eryth/Diphen sus
and it totally rocks.

I always swished and SWALLOWED my Nystatin. It tastes great and fills you up too. And I believe that is the recommended way to take the stuff. Of course, I took mine straight with no other additives so maybe that explains the spitting part. Mike
