Q.

Pls help baby has thrush

Pls advise what i could use for my 1 month old baby that has developed thrush in her mouth
We recently changed her fomula to lactose free, could this be the cause of it and if so what can i use to cure it?

Expert's Reply

A.

Paediatrician

The formula is not the cause. make sure that you sterise the teats of her bottle properly and carefully. Use Nystatin Oral solution 1ml 3 times a day for 5 days in her mouth. If the thrush does not clear please take your baby to your paediatrician.
