Thrush is an overgrowth of candida in the mouth and throat. Severe infection can spread to the esophagus. White patches resembling small curds develop inside the mouth, especially on the inner cheeks, tongue, throat and roof of the mouth.

Affected areas are swollen, red and irritated underneath the white growths. Corners of the mouth commonly become red, irritated and cracked. People with thrush may feel like their mouths are filled with cotton and can experience pain while eating or swallowing.3‘Candida Infections of the Mouth, Throat, and Esophagus.’ Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, www.cdc.gov/fungal/diseases/candidiasis/thrush/index.html
