Question: How long does it take for diflucan to work in an infant that has thrush?
My friends 2 1/2 m/o son has had thrush for 6 weeks. She has done both a round of gentian violet, and nystatin oral liquid, but nothing has worked. He took the diflucan about 5 days ago. Should a difference be noticed by now? Is mouth is raw, but still he has thrush. Everything has been boiled after apiece use. Why does he still have it?
Sry- I meant his mouth, not is mouth! lol.

The longer is goes unnoticed and treated, the longer it can take. That stuff grows crazy, tell her just to keep administering the medicine as often as directed.

    When my baby had thrush and took diflucan, I noticed an inprovement after the very first use. Seems like the medicine lasted about 2 weeks and I just gave it to him til it was gone. Good luck:)

    when my son had thrush, it was gone within two weeks. but we caught it litterally the day it appeared ( because he was in the hospital ). so the longer it goes unnoticed/treated the longer & harder it with be to get rid of.

    im not sure what the gave my son, its been too long ago. but it was in a brown bottle & the medicine itself was yellowish, and it worked wonders!

    he could still have it, if his hands are dirty & he sucks on them, or mom & dad let him suck/chew on their fingers without washing them first. it could be a number of things. you didnt say wheather or not he’s been to the doctor lately, but i’d def. get him there if he hasnt, that must be so painful & misrable for him :(

    best of luck hope the little guy gets better soon!

    My son used to get thrush ALL the time due to reflux……When he was given Diflucan, it usually started working within 24 hours……..Usually completely gone in a couple of days.

    I would call the doctor again. Something is going on there.
