IPL treatment and thrush?

I had a treatment today, but later realized I had thrush so i treated it with an oral tablet and external cream. I am now swollen (woke up to myself scratching). Am worried the cream did this (thrush).

Thank you for your question modessa. I understand your concern. IPL is a great treatment for facial rejuvenation. This is best evaluated by your doctor. It depends on what the cream and tablet were.

Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!

Thanks for your query. IPL does not cause thrush. It could be due to an allergic reaction from the cream you applied. You should see a dermatologist as soon as you can. Hope it helps.

Hello, and thanks for your question. IPL alone can cause some swelling. If you are still concerned, I suggest following up with your physician. Best of luck, Dr. Frucht.
