    My daughter and I both had thrush. It can be very painful for baby. It was painful for both of us. You should see a doctor and get a prescription. She had an oral medication and it cleared up in about 10-14 days.

    I used infant powder probiotics. I added a bit to her bottle a couple times a day and within a week and a half, she was cleared right up. I still use it in her bottles a few times a week because probiotics are good for your digestive system. I went to a doctor when my baby was 8 weeks old and she was hesitant to prescribe the anti fungal drops (not sure why) She then recommended that I try the probiotics and it sure worked great! Also works fantastic if your baby has constipation.

    you need to get an anti biotic!
    it doesnt come off. its like a fungus.
    you have to put an anti bacterial thing on it.
    theres drops the doctor gives you that helps it.
    it doesnt come off with anything out.

    A doctor would be your best bet. If thrush isn’t treated properly, it can come back. You should be boiling her bottle nipples and pacifiers, if she uses any of those at all, on a regular basis until the thrush clears up entirely. She could also develop a yeast infection on her bottom from it. That will also require an antibiotic. Either case of thrush is very painful.
    Good luck!

    it wont clear up on it’s own. you can either try probiotics and put some on your fingertips and rub in her mouth (go to a chiropractor or homeopathic medicine specialist to get this) or get the antifungal medicine from your dr.

    my son currently has thrush. he has had it for over 2 months. he’s been on the antifungal Nystatin 4 times a day this whole time. he even had the gentra (sp?) violet treatment at the clinic last week, but we can’t seem to get rid of it. i am breastfeeding and had been taking GSE (grapefruit seed estract) to prevent me from getting it in my breasts because i’ve heard it’s VERY painful for moms. i did also try the probiotics, but that didn’t seem to work either. it’s mostly gone except for a tiny white patch that just doesn’t want to go away!! good luck and make sure to get it looked asap because it can be itchy and painful for the babes too and can affect their appetite!!

    Yes I think you can treat this at home but it is wise to have a doctor see her. He may have other advice for you and that is worth the trip.

    My pediatrician gave me a “recipe” for a baking soda/water solution to swab my baby’s mouth with. It worked! Her thrush went away quickly and stayed gone. Maybe you could ask your doctor if he or she knows the right amounts of each, as I can’t remember. Baking soda is a natural antiseptic.
