Hi I'm Dr. Phil
Can I ask your first name?
Please can you help me with the diagnosis of what I have described and do I speak out loud
Yes I can help
why do you think it is thrush
is your mouth red or white and painful?
have you take any antibiotics lately Heather?
I have grosse irritation and discomfort of the mouth and am using mouthwash as prescribed and the problem is not getting a better
you need to get on an oral anti fungal
I recommend nystatin or fluconazole
What can I do until I get this treatment and do I get the stated from the chemist or via a doctor in the surgery as it has dragged me down and caused me an awful discomfort. Could I just ring in for the medication?
yes, you could
ask for nystatin from your chemist or doctor
it should be easy to get
I have some Flucloxacillin. Should I not try using that until further help please. As an anti- biotic. Or should I wait. I have been taking paracetamol.
no, this is for bacteria
this might actually make a fungus worse
I would get the nystatin or fluconazole
please don't forget a positive rating for me
I appreciate it
just click a positive face
As I went to a &e after the advice to get more emmediate help, ie. with aprescription, I was advised that no doctors help was essential and that Iwas to seek dental help. Thankyou for your help and time but, obviously itwas not the correct diagnosis.
