So my son told me his stomach just recently started bothering him every morning and he doesn’t know why. So I got tge glass of water out and had him spit in it and this time he had the stringy thing similar to the phots on the video. So what should I ask his Dr to do? Run any specific blood test or ask him to test him for anything in particular? How do they test for candida? He also noticed any sugar products weather its a juice box kool aid, sweets that’s when his tongue get painful and sores develope. Which he does not have these surgar products that often well he used to take a juice box to school with him every day and it never caused any issues until recently.. so far no luck with any Doc’s they all say never seen anything like it..
Hi Jrl, Most of us battle candida chronically. I have some, I have no doubt, but although FOUR ENT’s didn’t believe my tongue was “white enough” *eyeroll*, it showed up in my endoscopy. Anti-fungal meds don’t really touch it for me. But if he’s getting painful sores, I’d be surprised if your doctors don’t suggested reducing histamine and reducing acidic beverages/food for a while. Dentists may be a better bet. Ours gave our daughter a mouthrinse to help with pain, until hers subsided. Perhaps the docs aren’t used to seeing this because they either aren’t looking or they don’t see chronically ill patients very often? I’m not sure… I’m studying the underlying source of the problem right now. Wish me luck! 😉
