If you use an inhaler to treat your asthma, you should wash it at least once a week. Using a dirty inhaler can cause you to develop a yeast infection in your mouth and throat. If you have an infected mouth, wash your inhaler thoroughly every time you use it.
Oral yeast infections are a possibility as well. If you think you see symptoms, consult with your physician immediately. Some home remedies for an yeast infection in your mouth include rinsing with saltwater and drinking cool liquids.
If you have a yeast infection, try using an over-the-counter antifungal cream. You can find these at your local grocery store or drug store. They are available under different names like Vagisil and Monistat. Apply the cream as directed to the affected area to help soothe and treat the symptoms of yeast infection.
