I would see my regular GP...maybe do a swab? Are your gums sore?

It is just so hard to find a doc who really listens to what you are saying.

You are so right about finding someone to really listen!! It seems we have so many stupid annoying and painful symptoms that you hate to complain again! But lately the irritation is really getting to me. Oh well, I'll keep trying different things!

Thanks for the help and support!

Sistrozzie,

That's a good suggestion if we had a good one in our area. I went to one about my face because my skin is messed up...it's oily on top of having drying, flaking symptoms along with it. He didn't have one idea what causes it. Gave me a ointment and that was it. Oh well, I appreciate all the feedback. Just another thing to deal with, but isn't that what our life is all about??Wink

Thanks again,

Spruce

I suffer with candidiasis very frequently. My lips are always chapped but I am with margie on this one - Burt's Bees is awesome and very good for people with sensitivities. I have a very dry mouth and just drink tons of water.

Of course, I don't mind the chapped lips because it makes my lips look really pink and that is just about the only coloring on my body at this point.

I get it at our local drug store "Shoppers Drug Mart", or I am sure you can get it at somehwere like "Whole Foods"

I get mine at a place called 'Ulta'...you can also order online I am sure. I think Walgreens carries it too.

Wal Mart carries it too. It's over by the cough medicine and deodorants.
