Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

Can you look at the picture and tell me if I have an oral thrush?


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have seen the picture (attachment removed to protect patient identity). There is a depapillation of the tongue. As it is reddish, it seems to be a vitamin B complex deficiency. But, as the pictures are not in natural light, I cannot comment for sure. It can be an oral thrush (acute candidiasis) as well. There is no need to worry. Please take the following medications for five days, and you will be fine. Tablet Ketoconazole 100 mg once a day for five days. Tablet vitamin B complex once a day for a month.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
