Welcome to JA!


Thanks for the question..


ORAL candida infection is usually suspected because of the presence of white plaques on the buccal mucosa, palate, tongue, or the oropharynx. So it does involve the palate.


The usual symptoms of oropharyngeal candidiasis are a cottony feeling in the mouth, loss of taste, and sometimes pain on eating and swallowing.



If you have more questions, feel free to ask!

I was following your question.
Getting candida in the mouth after antibiotics is actually pretty uncommon.
Do you have diabetes or were you tested for HIV?
