Who Are Affected With Thrush

By Jules Hagey

Many individual when they hear the word thrush they think of a beautiful small bird; but still, the word thrush can be used to describe a painful disease of the mouth. Thrush is caused by yeast known as candida, or what is mostly referred to as fungus. Most cases of thrush occur in the mouth; however, thrush can also occur in other parts of the body.

Thrush can infect anyone at any age; however, thrush exists most rampant in babies, toddlers, older adults, and those people who have a weak immune system. Of these four groups of people, thrush is rampant in babies and toddlers.

If babies and toddlers are examined with thrush, the thrush looks like as white spotty inside the mouth and on the tongue. These white patches look like cottage cheese or milk curds. It is often for thrush to be wrong choice of milk and/or formula in babies. The white spotty that arised in the mouth and tongue cannot be remove and if they are rubbed in an attempt to remove them, the white patches will practically bleed. Thrush in babies and toddlers can cause their mouth and tongue to be sore and can cause difficulty with swallowing. Babies and toddlers affected from thrush may also lose their appetite, which can be mistaken for poor milk supply or lost their appetite. Babies and toddlers may also lost their appetite because the sores in their mouth are annoying them or they have a sore throat. Thrush may also cause babies and toddlers to become fussy thus resulting in their poor appetite. If babies and toddlers have thrush in their mouth and/or tongue, it is not uncommon for them to develop a diaper rash. The diaper rash develops because the fungus that is causing the thrush spread all over the body and can form within the stool.

Thrush in adults develops in the same procedures as in babies and toddlers. Whereas, before any signs of thrush appears, it is not natural for adults to be annoyed from a burning sensation within the mouth and throat. If the thrush infection get severe, white patches starts to form and stick on the tongue and mouth. However, the tissue around the thrush may look red, raw, and very burning to the touch. As the white wounds are rubbed, the affected area of the mouth may bleed. Whereas adults with thrush practically have a bad taste in the mouth and have hard time in tasting foods and drinks. Wherein the feeling of thrush in the mouth is comparable to having cotton inside the mouth. Those mothers who are breastfeeding may also at risk to having a ferment infection which is caused by the baby who is affected with thrush. Breast feeding mothers may suffer from sore, red nipples, and a burning pain within the nipples.

Thrush also infects adults who are taking specific medications such as; corticosteroids, antibiotics, and birth control. Specific medical conditions and illness can also enhanced the chances of having thrush symptoms. Some of the most common include; uncontrolled diabetes, Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS), cancer, dry mouth, and pregnancy.
