my ex has thrush.... how does a 36 year old get thrush ?
Oral pseudomembranous candidiasis ("yeast infection"; "thrush") is a relatively common condition, although most of the time other white lesions of the lining of the mouth are misdiagnosed as thrush. If the diagnosis was not made by an oral pathologist, or if the condition does not clear up after anti-fungal medication, then you should probably make an appointment to see an oral pathologist.
