According to healthline Thrush, often known as oral yeast infection, is caused by an overgrowth of the Candida fungus in the mouth. Rarely does this occur for no apparent reason; rather, it serves as a warning sign that the affected individual is struggling with a more significant issue, whether or not the underlying cause is immediately apparent.
In this piece, inspired by an article on Healthline, we'll investigate the underlying medical conditions that can lead to an oral yeast infection. Relax and take your time reading this article on some of the illnesses that might weaken the immune system and lead to oral thrush.
For the most part, what diseases cause oral thrush?
Yeast infections of the mouth are most commonly caused by HIV, which occurs in the early stages of the virus when the immune system is severely compromised. Being checked out is a good idea if you suddenly develop oral thrush after sex with someone who did not use a barrier method. In most cases, oral thrush is an early indicator of HIV infection.
Second, leukemia, a type of cancer of the blood, is another possible cause. Oral thrush that comes and goes frequently may be a sign of blood cancer or another blood problem that needs emergency care. The reason of unusual oral thrush should not be ignored, as prompt diagnosis and treatment could save the patient's life.
