Q: What can cause a yeast infection in the throat?

I have been taking QVAR.  My throat feels funny and it is harder to swallow.  Could this be a yeast infection?

Dear Trudy:

If you have a "funny feeling" in your throat or find it hard to swallow, you need to seek help from your doctor.  I do hope you find relief.  Feel free to let me know.
