Q.

Thrush around nappy area

My baby, now a year old, has had repeated thrush infections. We've used all available treaments over the year, including Daktarin, Nycostacin, Reuteri drops, he's eaten plenty of plain yoghurt and we air his nappy area alot while he has the rash. The last time he developed the rash, instead of clearing, little blisters formed. Are the blisters still thrush? If so, how do we treat them? I thought it may be due to new nappies I started using. We cleared the blisters but the rash never fully cleared and has now become bad again. What is the most effective way to get rid of his thrush once and for all? Thanks

Any child who gets repeated thrush infections must have a his immune status checked. Please arrange for this to be done ASAP.

Hi..

It may not be as a result of thrush, but it may be that the little fella/girlie is teething.
