Oral Candida (i.e., oral Thrush) is seen at the end of HIV; when the disease has progressed from HIV to AIDS. It is a very painful condition which is hard to miss.

Many who worry they are HIV positive and look for symptoms on the internet mistake the normal white coloring on the tongue for Thrush; it is not the same thing.
