    you dont have to take her to the doctor, just treat her with gentian violet and if your breast feeding you need to treat you nipples too.

    Actually thrush is contagious and after being treated she can be reinfected if what she’s caught it from still has it on. This is why breastfeeding mothers are also treated for thrush when baby has it

    So you’re right to warn your sister in law, I’m hoping she sterilised the dummy!

    A chemist should be able to give you something for her so go there rather than the ER and call your doctor for an appointment

    You should not have to wait a week for an appointment for your baby to be seen. This is an illness which needs to be treated quickly. Nurse Jacki is wrong-it is highly contagious, just as athlete’s foot and jock itch (same organism) are contagious.

    Call the doctor now and ask to be seen today or tomorrow. If you can not be accommodated, ask about the emergency department or other arrangements. As I said before, it might not be thrush, but it could be quite contagious. And while she may not be you uncomfortable now, thrush can be painful, and so can other oral problems.

    Oral thrush can usually not be treated successfully at home, and you’re not even sure that it’s thrush.
