Hi, When and if you find a cure, let me know. My dental hygenist said it was a kind of fungus like, thrush. Once you have it, it's tough to get rid of. However, if it's a similar thing, I was rinsing with warm salt water several times a day. Hey, it can't hurt to try. I put a half a teaspoon in a small glass then fill with warm water. Try to do it as often as possible, when I do that it does help, for me. I only thought babies had thrush! Do you by coincidence have any of the following: fibromyalgia chronic fatigue syndrome chronic myofascial pain syndrome Just trying to find some commonalities. Feel free to drop me a line, maybe we can figure it out. Sincerely, Susan from Calif.
