After my round of Solumedrol, I now have thrush. I googled it but it looks NOTHING like this…
Ok, maybe I should have googled ORAL thrush and not the bird.
Although, I am pretty sure the thrush below does have thrush…
My oral thrush, however, does not look like what normal thrush does. Usually it’s a nasty white furry coat.
No, no, no. Not like that. First off, that is a nice fur coat, and second, I mean on the tongue.
But mine is not white, nor furry. It is just a really red, raw tongue with a lot of white bumps. And it hurts bad.
I ran into this problem when I had my last IV infusion of Solumedrol, so now I know, Solumedrol equals oral thrush aka candida.
Why do not not tell me this? Warn a girl about this nasty thing that is about to happen.
And so it goes, I now have thrush, but luckily my doctor is calling me in a prescription for it. After all, it does require prompt medical intervention. ;)
