Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

the chances of him contracting oral fungal infection from sucking on your fingers during intimacy is very very very small.

Dr. David :

there are fungal spores all around us.

Dr. David :

there is fungal spores in our bathrooms, in the shower, around the sink, in our homes, at the grocery store, at our work place.

Dr. David :

so it is very common for fungal spores to get inside of our mouths.

Dr. David :

with normal immune systems, most people don't get thrush fungal infections from common fungal exposure.

Customer:
