Oral thrush

I’ve been suffering for 3 months now with oral thrush and burning mouth, I’ve tested negative for all Std with multiple tests 17 times in fact and been diagnosed with Chronic Prostatis.
Initially was in a 3 month course of different antibiotics and a week after finishing I developed the oral thrush.
I’ve tried everything to get rid of it including Fluconazole, nystatin and daktatin but it just comes back.
I had a prostate massage that shows I have an infection with enterrocus and staphylococcus so now I have another months worth of amoxicillin to take.
The Ent doc says I have LPR reflux along with the thrush and apparently they are common together.
Any ideas how I can get rid of it?
Could oral thrush come from anxiety too?

I'd talk to your doctor. You may need a longer course of treatment of antifungal liquid or lozenges.  Gargling with salt water and paying close attention to oral hygiene. Do what you can to boost your immune system.   You took 3  months worth of antibiotics for the prostitis? overgrowth of yeast can happen with that type of prolonged antibiotic use.  The fact that you are still taking antibiotics means it will be hard to eradicate the oral thrush until you are finished. Talk to the doctor about what you can do.
