Q.

3 Month Old Oral Thrush

Please help! Doc diagnosed 3 month old with oral thrush two weeks ago. Was given Daktarin to put in her mouth and on my nipples. It was almost gone, but after 2 days it''s baxk in full swing!

What can I give to clean the mouth? Have read that Gentian Violet works. Should I try that?

Do not try gentian violet.Try Nystatin Oral Solution 1 ml 3 times a day for 5 days in your baby's mouth. Continue to apply the Daktarin to your nipples twice daily.
