Both my partner and our baby have picked up thrush.
The doctor has given us some medicine - a gloopy lotion to rub in the babies mouth and my partner was given a single table which she has taken. This has seemed fairly ineffective and it just seems to have made our baby's poop toxic. Since starting the medicines she now gets quite irritated when she fills her nappy. (This maybe coincidental, but I trust the female intuition). So I would prefer to stay away from the doctors and their chemicals.
All the information I can find on the internet seems to be tied to selling some anti-candida product or other, and I can't find anything specific for helping babies.
What really is the best way to get rid of our baby's thrush?
Our doctor changed his mind about his diagnosis and said that she didn't have thrush after all. So I have not been able to try the answers suggested here and so cannot accept any of the answers.
So I would prefer to stay away from the doctors and their chemicals.is a very dismissive way to refer to the entire of medical science. Doctors (and their chemicals) have built up the current medical knowledge to levels that would be deemed supernatural only a century ago. Neither they, nor pharmacists are quacks desparate to try out their latest magic potion on you and yours; they're highly trained professionals who have dedicated their lives to improving the lives of people.
