Yes, Patti.  I am so relieved.  If the daktarin doesn't work I will try ACV.  I enjoyed a couple of chunk of Pineapple though and it seems to have great healing properties for Thrush.

I had no idea pineapple was good for Thrush - but there again I've never had the oral kind!  LOL (the mind positively boggles treating 'my' kind with pineapple, doesn't it girls ?!!)

Have to say I never want to eat all THAT much of it in one go TBH, even though I love it - I find it's self limiting but normally kick starts the lower end of my digestive system very efficiently when I need help in that direction, so another reason to limit it !

When my little one got flu they said drink pineapple juice, it did seem to help so....worth a go! That was for her cough, so may not have even been thrush related.

I've had thrush (the intimate kind) for about a month now, that's with hubby and I treating every blooming day. I can confirm you can get canesten over the counter at the chemist (cream and pessary) for free, and the oral tablet costs money. Silly rules they have!! If pineapple helps "down there" I'm desperate enough to pop some in place!

I wondered if mashing it in with the natural yogurt in the same Tampax tube applicator might be the way - but how the hell does one get rid of the residue?

Pineapple yogurt is delicious, so if eating it would help it's certainly worth a try!

Is that where the expression “stuff me with the rough end of a pineapple” (expressing amazement and disbelief at unfair treatment) comes from?

I had this thought the other day when this had come up and then I saw pineapples in the grocery...wondered if it was "a bridge too far" for this forum, decided against it. Clearly I was wrong!  :rofl:

Hello.   My mouth is driving me mad with heat and bitter tastes and has done for a month or so now.  I may be barking up the wrong tree entirely now but in time frame this all stems from a horrible throat infection I had in September.  I had a hefty dose of antibiotics (hadn't had one for 25 years before this) which didn't really do much for the throat until the last minute.  Whilst I was taking the horrible things I was getting tastes in my mouth but this stopped when I found I had Oral thrush, not surprisingly after so many antibiotics.  After that I had a brief remission from the bitter/metallic/yukky tastes and in the last month they have returned.  I had gone to the doc when this all started (the tastes that is) and she gave me Lansoprazole which when I researched seemed to be for the treatment of GERD.  Well if GERD can be absolutely symptomless (and thats after a slightly more carby Christmas when I would expect to have at least one bout of heartburn).  So I don't think that's it.

Has anyone experienced this?  I would rather not add another 'syndrome' to the list!  Its worse first thing in the morning and I find that when I put in my dentures it improves.  I also have been suffering at the same time with a runny nose, Post Nasal Drip and sneezing.  I am taking Pirateze (all my own diagnoses - rightly or wrongly) - but that's not doing a lot yet.  I know I don't have thrush anymore.

Anyone suffered this?   Thanks

SWMBO suffered two odd symptoms. For years she has been unable to eat tomato skins; they come back up a little while later despite the rest of the meal staying down. As the cook I have learned to skin all tomatoes before cooking or serving them fresh in a sald.

I have GORD/GERD and know the symptoms; she has never had my severe heartburn attacks or anything similar. But for the the past six months she has complained about a bitter taste in her mouth when waking in the morning. Sometimes the taste woke her during the night.

The doctor diagnosed GORD and prescribed Losec initially but changed that to Ranitidine a few months ago, concerned about possible Losec side effects. Both helped the reflux problem but the Ranitidine has led to a rare side effect of hair loss. The doc re-prescribed Losec but I advised her to quit both meds for a trial period to hopefully reverse the hair loss. For the moment the reflux symptoms are in abeyance.

As a mere male I am staying well away from some other conversations on this topic...:)
Cheers, Alan, T2, Australia.
