Oral thrush - Candida. What next?

Anybody got any advice re oral thrush. My tonsils are coated and nothing tastes right. I have Corsidyl and Daktarin gel but how I’m supposed to get it on my tonsils is anyone’s guess. Is it the Chemo or is it the steroids after the brain radiotherapy?  Just one more thing making me thoroughly fed up. 

Lancashire lass if you are on chemo oral thrush will require antibiotics, fluconzole was what lots of us have had to clear it up. You must get in touch with your rapid response immediately. Please keep safe :two_hearts: :two_hearts: :sparkles: :sparkles: Shi xx

Phone your GP ASAP. You need some help with oral thrush. I would also change toothpaste to tee tree as well as taking a teaspoon of high grade Manuka honey daily. Ann x

Well I spent 6 days in hospital and now have induced immune therapy hepatitis but will need to ring emergency line again shortly as now have had diarrhoea 9 times in 10 hours and lft levels were still high but their were happy for me to come home on oral steroids for 2 months but looks like I may be going back it’s so unfair
