A Oral Thrush, also known as a hordeolum, is a red, painful lump that forms on the edge of the eyelid. It occurs when one of the eyelid's oil glands becomes infected or blocked. Oral Thrushs are usually caused by bacteria called Staphylococcus aureus.


White or Creamy Patches: Raised, curd-like white or creamy patches that can be easily scraped off are a common sign of oral thrush.

A weakened immune system is a common predisposing factor for oral thrush. Conditions such as HIV/AIDS, cancer, diabetes, organ transplantation, and autoimmune diseases can compromise the immune system's ability to control fungal overgrowth.

The use of broad-spectrum antibiotics can disrupt the natural balance of microorganisms in the mouth. Antibiotics kill beneficial bacteria that help keep Candida growth in check, leading to an overgrowth of the fungus.

Prolonged use of corticosteroids, such as those used in asthma inhalers or for the treatment of autoimmune disorders, can weaken the immune system and increase the risk of oral thrush.

Tobacco smoke can damage the oral mucosa, impairing its ability to fend off fungal infections. Smoking also weakens the immune system, making it easier for Candida to multiply.

Poor oral hygiene: Inadequate oral hygiene allows bacteria and yeast to accumulate in the mouth, potentially leading to an overgrowth of Candida.

Oral Thrush Symptoms

  • White or creamy patches: The presence of raised, curd-like white or creamy patches on the tongue, inner cheeks, roof of the mouth (palate), gums, and tonsils is a hallmark symptom of oral thrush. These patches can sometimes be easily scraped off, leaving behind a raw, red or bleeding surface.
  • Soreness or discomfort: The affected areas in the mouth may be sore, sensitive, or painful. This discomfort can range from mild to severe and may worsen during eating or drinking.
  • Difficulty swallowing: If the patches or accompanying inflammation extend to the back of the throat, it can make swallowing difficult and painful.
  • Loss of taste: Oral thrush can affect the taste buds,leading to a diminished sense of taste or an unpleasant metallic taste in the mouth.
  • Dry mouth: Some individuals with oral thrush may experience a dry or cottony sensation in the mouth. This can be due to reduced saliva production or the presence of the fungal infection itself.
  • Cracking or redness at the corners of the mouth: In some cases, oral thrush can extend beyond the oral cavity,leading to the appearance of red, cracked skin at thecorners of the mouth (angular cheilitis)..
