    Question Gentian Violet okay for 6 week old?

    Hello,

    I have heard that Gentian Violet can work really well for Thrush. Does anyone know if it is okay a six week old infant?

    Thanks,
    Ericka

    I used gentian violet when my daughter was older so cannot comment on its suitability for a baby of 6 weeks. I would suggest that you consult Dr. Jack Newman's web site; he is a big proponent of gentian violet. I can tell you that while you are using it, you will need to be aware that it can stain clothing and will probably turn your baby's mouth blue. Good luck!

    Hello Ericka,
    As LLL we are not permitted to give medical advice, but I can give you the link to Dr. Newman's GV protocol. You may want to discuss this with your care provider.
