Good afternoon, I want to ask, is antibiotics able to cure thrush?

1 Answer:

Hello Inok, Thank you for the question.


Antibiotics may not be able to cure thrush because canker sores can be caused by various causes. Antibiotics are drugs that are used to treat bacterial infections. Thus, if canker sores are not caused by a bacterial infection, antibiotics cannot overcome canker sores. You must be careful when using antibiotics. Never use antibiotics without any help and doctor. Inappropriate use of antibiotics can cause the emergence of bacterial immunity against these antibiotics. In addition, you are also exposed to the side effects of antibiotics that can actually be avoided.


Thrush is a wound in the oral cavity that causes discomfort or pain. The following are some of the causes of canker sores:

injuries to the lining of the mouth for example due to being bitten, using braces, chewing hard food
hormonal changes
vitamin B12 and iron deficiency
Crohn's disease
low immune system
viral, bacterial, or fungal infections
side effects of consuming spicy foods and coffee drinks
side effects of using toothpaste containing sodium lauret sulfate (SLS)
quit smoking
high stress
Please do the following suggestions:

multiply the consumption of foods with balanced nutrition
enough water intake
choose soft foods to reduce discomfort / pain in canker sores
avoid consuming spicy, sour, oily foods
avoid coffee consumption
manage stress well
avoid using toothpaste that contains SLS

If thrush does not heal for more than 3 weeks, occurs repeatedly, or sores can get worse, you should immediately consult a doctor for further examination and treatment.


I hope this helps.
