Hello doctor,

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

Hello,

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.
  1. Tablet Ketoconazole 100 mg once a day for five days.
  2. Tablet vitamin B complex once a day for a month.
