Where to Buy Dr Tung's Tongue Cleaner in Melbourne?

Hi guys,

I really need to get the above tongue cleaner for my mum, who has cancer and can't get rid of oral thrush which is affecting her ability to eat.

Would like to get one for her tomorrow rather than waiting for shipping.

Anyone know of a physical stores that sells them?

Thanks

    that requires anti-biotics

      Actually antibiotics is something that can cause oral thrush, along with Chemo and Radio therapy - you need anti fungal treatments coupled with good oral hygiene practices.

      OP - Best of luck with your mum's treatment. I hope she is responding well to the treatment, despite the side effects.

    Thank you guys so much. Yes, she is using Nilstatin, plus oral medication, but she has needed about 10 courses of antibiotics over the past few months, combined with chemo, radiotherapy, and the inability to eat much means it is very hard to get rid of.

    I was hoping this might help try and get some of the coating off the tongue before she uses the oral drops, or at least help food not to taste so gross, as she is literally wasting away.

    Unfortunately ongoing oral thrush is a known side effect of the treatments she needs.
