Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

The goal of treatment is to restore the normal balance of bacteria and yeast in the mouth. Treatments may include:

Antifungal Medication
Thrush may be treated with lozenges, troches (a type of lozenge that dissolves in your mouth), tablets, or oral rinses, which you swish around your mouth and then swallow. Medications that are active against yeast, include:

Gentian violet (occasionally)

Many of these are over-the-counter. Your pharmacist can help.
