Does anyone know of any way to get Gentian Violet off of a babies mouth/lips? We have to give him 2 more doses I believe and he is already a purple mess after the first dose. I realize that the mouth, teeth and tongue are going to be stained. But surely there is a way to remove some of it from all over his mouth?
Apparently rubbing alcohol or vodka on a cotton swab will remove some of the staining. You can prevent or at least reduce the staining by using some vaseline or olive oil on your babies lips before using the Gentian Violet.
Here a link with tips for removing Gentian Violet stains.
