  • Erythematous (atrophic) candidiasis is when the condition appears as a red, raw-looking lesion. (wikipedia.org)
  • Some sources consider denture-related stomatitis, angular stomatitis, median rhombiod glossitis, and antiobiotic-induced stomatitis as subtypes of erythematous candidiasis, since these lesions are commonly erythematous/atrophic. (wikipedia.org)
  • Where it is associated with inhalation steroids (often used for treatment of asthma), erythematous candidiasis commonly appears on the palate or the dorsum of the tongue. (wikipedia.org)
