Question
I Hear Radiation can give thrush.

If you have it in the Mouth what would be a good thing to do for it or does it go away by it's self?

Answer
Bob,
It is true that if you have radiation to your neck, you may develop a thrush. However, unfortunately, a radiologist would be a poor choice to recommend medications for patients :)
I would have to refer you to your radiation oncologist for the best and most appropriate treatment for you.  Sorry, but that is way out of my expertise, even though the question seems fairly simple.
