Hi, Anon.

Thank you for your post.

Esophageal thrush is a yeast infection of the throat. The condition is also known as oral candidiasis or oropharyngeal candidiasis. If you have esophageal thrush but you’re otherwise healthy, your doctor may recommend that you eat yogurt or take acidophilus to treat the infection. These treatments don’t kill fungus, but they can restore the natural balance of healthy bacteria in your body, which works to fight the infection. An antifungal medication, such as itraconazole, is often prescribed to adults with compromised immune systems. This prevents the fungus from spreading and works to eliminate it from the body.

See your doctor who will advise you on what to do.
