Undoing thrush effects of steroid inhalers

Hallo Can anyone with Asthma please advise?After prescribing a Becanose Steroid Inhaler to attempt to clear my Eustachian tubes I used it for some 8 weeks.It was then I discovered that one possible side effect was oral thrush.So I discontinued use of the inhaler.However some 8 weeks later the thrush is still with me.This is possibly caused by a lowering on the immune system caused by the inhaler.Despite various anti thrush treatments its proving tricky to clear.Has anyone any experience of this?Ought the immune system to undo the thrush and how long can this be expeceted to take?Has anyone had a similiar experience?
