    Default :panic Not again!!!! Thrush returns.

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh. DD has thrush - again.

    Some of you may recall she had it for NINE weeks when she was about 3 months old. I shall now proceed to stab myself in the eye. :stabbingselfineye

    I'm in no pain though.

    NOOOOOOOOO.

    How do you know she has it? White patches in the mouth? Get those probiotics going, mama.

    You might not have it? My DD had oral thrush once when I was still nursing her, and I never had any symptoms myself?

    I took her to the doctor, because I saw white spots on the back of her throat and thought it was strep. The cultured for strep, but it was negative.

    Her tongue is white too, but it always has a white coating.

    I will just start the treatment madness in full force. Maybe I can kick it quickly if I do everything all at once? GSE, sunlight, probiotics, etc. She tried to just give me Nystatin and then gave up the Diflucan when I told her I'd been down this road before. Ugh

    What's the best way to kill it on her toys? A GSE solution maybe??? Would Lysol wipes do the trick?

    Was it just the in-office rapid strep test that came back negative? Or was it the culture they sent off that came back negative? The only reason I ask is... I have had my DD's rapid strep test come back negative, but they always send the swab off to be cultured, and I have had THAT come back positive for strep, after the rapid test was negative. Just wanted to put it out there, that it might still be strep? Has your DD been exposed to strep at daycare lately?

    It's possible, but she's only been there once a week since I got laid off. Her tongue was white before she went last tuesday.

    It was one of those rapid ones. I'm spraying her toys with a gse solution and putting them in the sun.

    The thrush seems to be breaking up on her tongue already! Hopefully, it will be gone soon. YAY! I guess my nine weeks of thrush boot camp came in handy this time around.
