Oral Thrush Prognosis
The prognosis for infants who experience thrush is excellent. Like many issues, age has its benefits. The function and effectiveness matures as an individual passes from infancy to childhood to adulthood. As such, the frequency of thrush diminishes with age.
Older children, teens, and adults who develop thrush (and are not employing inhaled corticosteroids) should have an evaluation by their physician.
