Has anyone had an infant with thrush just apparent on his tongue and was it difficult to get rid of?
my son had it 2 months ago when he was 5months old and i just went to the chemist and braught over the counter DAKTARIN cleared it up straight away it was quarter or the teaspoon provided twice a day. it was cleared within 3 days.If your baby is under 4 months i dont think u can use daktarin but there is another one called NILSTAT drops they only seem to work if u get it straight away when symptoms first appear. Answer There is an oral med the doctors can give you and if you are nursing they should be able to give you cream to put on your nipples so when he nurses it will not be transmitted back and forth. Sorry I can't give specifics, its been so long since my experience. Answer When my infant had thrush 7 1/2 years ago the Dr. prescribed Nystatin to take orally by mouth. My child always forced most of it out. I started taking a clean dry washcloth and rubbed his tongue a little and then had him drink water. I found it does clear up on it's own but if it spreads throughout the mouth it takes longer. My youngest who will be 2 never got it. Go figure. Answer the best, most effective and safe cure is to buy some good quality plain whole milk yogurt put a little on the babys tongue, be careful for milk allergies. put a little on your nipples and eat as much as you can . the cultures in the yogurt will kill the yeast in the thrush. Answer If your child has thrush the doctor will most likely prescribe Nystatin which is a liquid that is given orally you have to put the medication on the affected areas although the baby may make this very diffucult try your best also make sure that you sterilize the nipples on the bottles if your using them and pacifiers daily ( it would help to have more than one that way they are more sterile) and the thrush should clear up also after the baby is done eating take a wet washcloth and clean the inside of the mouth making sure to get the tongue and inside of the cheeks very well hope this helps you out...Good Luck and God Bless!!! Also as far as the answer above mine it is not recommended to give infants yogurt because they may have some type of allergic reaction to it also there litle bodies aren't ready for that yet...and I have never heard of yogurt CURING a yeast infection which is what thrush is so just go to the doctor and use what is prescribed!!! Answer When my daughter had it I was prescribed nystatin. I started first by wiping her mouth out with a wet washcloth, then as my dr. told me applied it with a Q-tip on her tongue and cheeks. After that it cleared up fast.

Answer . My daughter has this and her pediatrian called it a "geographic" tongue. As long as your doctor has ruled out thrush, it is nothing to worry about.
It does not go away easily. The best thing you can do is just brush your tongue and teeth like you normally would every day. If it does not go away in a day or two, see a doct…or. my doctor has just advised me ,with my `black furry tongue` ,``go and buy some fresh pineapple and eat it,simple as that.``26.09.08, doing just that as we speak right now ,will keep you posted as to the resulrs & timelines, dingo56 , see ya.
Oral thrush is a common problem in infants. It is due to fungal infection causes by candida albicans. It causes white patches in the mouth which can interfere with feeding. Th…ere can be some bleeding if the patch is removed. It can be treated with a local antifungal solution. Thrush refers to candida infection of mouth. It is a common problem and can be easily treated with local anti fungal preparations.
Thrush is a fungal infection resultant from an endemic spore. You almost never see a thrush infection without a compromised immune system, so this disease is a harbinger of ot…her problems.. The treatment for this on humans (and possibly dogs) is a course of prescription medice (Diflucan, Fluconazole, etc,), so you likely can't treat at home.. And in this case you shouldn't. If it is thrush, it can go systemic which means it requires lifetime treatment. Also, diagnosing Thrush requires culturing it, so you may indeed have thrush or something similar but not the same.. More important, I think, is the indication of a compromised immune system. I strongly suggest you get this dog to your vet and have her work the dog up to find out what the underlying cause is.
Thrush is caused by an overgrowth of yeast in the mouth of infants. Usually this happens if a baby switches from breast to bottle and the bottle is not properly sanitized firs…t. Thrush is basically the equivalent of a female yeast infection only a baby's starts in the mouth. After a baby has taken the required medication to get rid thrush they will usually get a diaper rash resulting in small white pimples. The doctor may give you a ointment to apply.
No that would be very unlikely. sugest visit to doctor.
I got my tongue pierced just under a week ago and there is a crater like indent developing on the top of my tongue. Why is this and what can I do to get rid of it?
This is because of the jewelry resting on the top of the piercing. I got one with my belly button and my tongue. But the one on my belly button is gone now, and the one on my …tongue is almost gone. I got my tongue and belly button pierced about two months ago.
No Thrush occurs when the oral bacterial balance in your mouth is out of whack, this can be caused by over using antibacterial or antimicrobial mouth washes too much. Tongue p…iercing aftercare is simple, cool stuff as much as possible as often as possible (that's freezies, slushies, crushed ice, chamomile ice cubes etc.). That doesn't include dairy products (milk, yogurt, sour cream, ice cream or any milk products) which tend to leave a coating on the tongue which can annoy a new piercing. Oral rinses like good old school Listerine, yep the awful tasting yellow stuff is perfect to use as a post piercing rinse. Here's why unlike antimicrobial and antibacterial rinses which can cause a oral malbalance, Listerine suppresses the bacterial and microbial counts evenly without throwing things for a loop. Besides you are only going to rinse after meals, between those periods just good old *cold water works wonders (*should do this after having a smoke). So now you know a bit more, Happy Piercings.
There is medication for it all over but if you are able to just wash the hoof thoroughly and keep it clean then that will make a world of difference. Oh and do not put javex o…r bleach on it!
If you mean "vaginal" thrush, this is just a yeast infection. You can buy creams to treat vaginal yeast infections at most drugstores. It does not require a prescription. T…he term "thrush" is usually only used to refer to a yeast infection in the mouth or throat.
Not directly, but taking any antibiotic can create the conditionsfor fungi to grow.
Once a day is plenty. Use a mild, unscented soap -- not great smelling body wash, not antibacterial soap, no douching or feminine cleaning sprays or produtts.
Thrush is caused by over use of oral rinses or mouth washes. You were using mouth wash way too much and threw the oral bacterial balance out of whack. Stop using the mouth was…h and see your doctor, you will not need to remove the jewellery, we just need to get the oral bacterial count back into balance and every thing will be fine. You doctor will recommend or prescribe a treatment, follow his/her instructions and ignore what your piercing studio told you because clearly there information caused your issue in the first place.
