Many Of The Best Mouth Thrush Treatments In Children

in Breast
Hello everyone,

First off we will be offering some mouth thrush treatment solutions for children. Thrush is a common infection for babies and toddlers because their immune system has not fully developed yet and their mouth tends to stay wet all the time.

Most of the time thrush in children will clear up before you can cure it with treatments, as odd as that sounds. However their mouths can become really sore and it may be painful for them to eat, so these things may help ease their pain and knock back the symptoms.

Babies with thrush that are under a month old can be persribed Nystatin. Doctors usually recommend 0.5 ml 4 times a day, with older infants and toddlers recieving 1 ml. Treatments are 7 to 10 days going at least 3 days beyond the last sign of infection.

Diflucan is another prescribtion medication that you only have to do once a day in a oral suspension and it tends to be a little more effective than Nystatin. However it is a strong medication and may not be necessary for a mild infection plus it's expensive.

If your feeling like a home remedy you could try Gentian Violet. It's tried and true and has been around forever, just be warned this stuff will stain purple anything, carpet, your hands, tile, the family dog, I do mean anything. It is just not a good option for me just way to messy.

100% pure virgin coconut oil has some great benifits as a home remedy. It's a natural immune booster which is perfectly safe for babies and easily digestible. If the mother spreads a small amount on her nipples before and after breast feeding it can stop the spread of thrush. Only bad part is it's sorta pricey you might fing it cheaper online than at your local grocery store.

Probably one of the easier home remedys would be apple cider vinegar, the raw unfiltered kind. Yeast and vinegar don't mix, yeast can not live in a vinegar rich area. So dabbing a small amount on the nipples before and after breast feeding is a excellent mouth thrush treatment.

One of the easiest treatments for the mother to keep from spreading candida is to simply expose the breast to sunlight for a few minutes a couple of times a day. Candida loves the dark damp places and it just cannot handle sunlight not even for a few minutes. Wearing loose cotton shirts during breast feeding can also be a big help.
