Thanks for the query.
Although oral thrush is a symptom of HIV infection, it is not a specific symptom. It can happen in other conditions as well where the immunity of a person is low, as in recurrent infections, fungal infections, malignancies, nutritional deficiencies, lack of oral hygiene, and unknown causes. However, since you have a history of exposure to HIV, oral thrush can be considered as an early symptom of HIV.
Kindly see a physician or a dermatologist for an examination and also get tested for HIV .
Hope this helped.
