How can you tell if you have a yeast infection in the mouth?
Most people with yeast infections of the mouth have a thick, soft, white coating which can be scraped off. Sometimes people have a funny or bad taste in the mouth, and sometimes the mouth feels irritated. Other diseases or medicines can also cause white coatings of the mouth.
