I had been taking the caprylic acid tablets and swalling them whole. I recently dumped the capsul into water and swished as you suggested. Before doing this my mouth was pretty much cleared up with a few stragglers after taking Diflucan for three weeks (on the last week now). After the caprylic acid in water, my mouth looks 99% normal. I think I'll try this four times a day and stick to the diet for a couple more weeks. By the middle of next week the suppression from the diflucan will be worn out and I should be able to guage if I am cured. I've also been taking maximum acidophilis tablets. Hopefully this will do the trick. If not I think it's onto Threelac.
