Hi guys! Hope you're all doing ok! Am currently captured and that's probably what's triggered this as not moved out of bed for a few days and so not brushed my teeth properly but my mouth is very sore and dry. I do have a bit of thrush but it feels more dry and sore than usual. I would assume that when I was taking care of my mouth properly again it'd sort itself out a bit, but as for the foreseeable future I'm nebulising my steroids, I know that's really rough on your mouth, I. Worried now it's started to get bad it might not improve properly. Apart for nystatin to treat the thrush, is there any 'symptomatic relief' you can have for the dryness and soreness? Would temporary use of artificial salvias be suitable for this.
Also, in terms of nebulised steroids - are they bad for your eyes? My family has a strong history of glaucoma so my cons has said to be careful when nebbing my ipatropium as that can increase risk of glaucoma (I neb my morning and evening doses so tend to do it while I'm still basically unconscious and so my eyes are closed anyways!) but he didn't mention anything about the steroid, I'll try to remember to ask tommoz but there have been so many changes recently I have a few questions and do have a tendency to forget things like that!!
Thanks for any advice guys
