Caption: Close-up of the tongue of a 71 year old male asthma patient showing thrush (Candida infection) on the tongue after using an inhaled steroid. Oral candidiasis (thrush) is caused by the fungus Candida albicans. Thrush can develop after taking drugs which destroy too many of the body's natural bacteria which help to naturally limit Candida growth.
