Hi, I have just had the results back from my PEG swab and I have thrush. I'm to get canisten cream for it. Anyone else had this problem? How on earth did I get thrush in my PEG? I've had a PEG for four years and never had this problem before. Any ideas on how to prevent it happening again? I have quite a lot of over granulation which is sore and bleeds. I have been told for the very first time in four years that to prevent this happening the triangle plate needs to be tight against the body. I'm trying this.

There has been atleast two cases Peggy;
