I had a stubborn case of thrush. I tried peroxide, genetian violet and when that didn't work I went to the doctor and was put on Fluconazole for 10 days and after I was out of the prescription I still had it or at least I think I did. My tongue was still white but I didnt have any other symptoms. I tried scraping the tongue and everything and still white. Started looking for other remedies and came across this page so I tried milk of magnesia and let me tell you that it worked almost instantly. my tongue is back to normal. WOW

I have to say that I am amazed. I have had oral thrush for weeks and even with the Nystatin prescribed by my dentist, it wasn't getting any better - in fact getting worse. I read this post (I am at the beach and I was so ticked off that I was having trouble eating anything) and decided to try the Milk of Magnesia. OMG - it really works!!! It has taken 2-3 days of doing it for 3 min about 4-5 times a day but it is almost gone!!!! Thanks!

I developed horrible oral thrush after 5 weeks on antibiotics for a chronic Staph aureus sinus infection of 34 years. I've had so many antibiotics over the years for this infection that my systemic Candida was now on overload. My heart rate was escalating and I felt like the thrush was taking over and I would probably die if it wasn't eliminated. The immediate source seemed to be Candida in my sinuses which was flowing down the back of my throat.

I was given Nystatin Oral Suspension in the ER but it has a ton of sugar and made me gag. I decided it was irrational to treat Candida with sugar so I had to look for something else. I would have called my doctor for an Rx of plain Nystatin powder to use as a mouthwash, but it was Memorial weekend.

Desperate, I read the testimonies on EC and decided to try Milk of Magnesia. I started with 2 tablespoons undiluted MoM and swished it in my mouth for a few minutes. I was amazed and overjoyed when the fungus began peeling off right away. I did this for two days but increased the time and diluted the MoM a bit. By evening of the 2nd day there was no more white mold bonded to my tongue or gums.

However, the night of the 1st day I realized I needed to attack the immediate source or the thrush would return. So I took the syringe that came with the Nystatin suspension, partially filled it with diluted MoM and shot it up my sinues. Then tilted my head backward and forward and upside down so it would move around. It did burn but was not unbearable. I then went to bed and the next morning felt much better. I did the same thing on night #2 and day #3 felt even better.

I realize I now need to destroy the Candida in my sinuses or I'll have another outbreak of thrush. Has anyone been able to totally eliminate Candida in the sinuses with MoM? If so, what is the procedure? I am also starting in earnest an anti-Candida program for my whole system which will take several months, but it's the only way to deal the problem.

Thanks so much for your testimonies and for this website. They have been an enormous blessing!

After coming down with thrush from treatment for pnuemonia, my Dr prescribed Nystatin. 8 Days later, it was still holding on and getting worse. I took the advice here and gargled with Milk of Magnesia... Full strength, no diluting for about 3 minutes... The effect was instant. It pulled all the yeast from my tongue, gums and even lips with the first treatment and instantly my mouth was soothed. I've done 3 treatments and brushed with baking soda and I feel so much better.

After a heart attack in 2007, I came home from hospital and quickly developed a very painful oral thrush. Eventually I discovered the value of magnesium in heart disease. That led me to search for other benefits magnesium might cure. I found this Milk of Magnesia remedy for thrush on Earth Clinic. I used about a tablespoon of Milk of Magnesia mixed with the same amount of water so I can swish, gargle and spit.

It was nearly instant relief of the oral pain... and the thrush itself was gone in about a day. God bless the folks at Earth Clinic.

Thrush in newborns: Take a q-tip or cotton swab dip it in Milk of Magnesia and rub it around the babies mouth twice a day sure enough it will cure it just as fast as it came on. I have a one month old who got thrush and sure enough instantly it started working. Helped ease the discomfort and cleared it up with not problems!!!
