I am looking to see if anyone has had a successful treatment to cure recurring thrush?
My son is 6 months old and we have had thrush off and on since he was about 4 weeks old. I believe this problem stemmed from me being on antibiotics before he was born for a sinus infection (which gave me a vag. yeast infection & something like thrush in my own mouth for a day or two) then I was on 2 strong antibiotics for 2 weeks to get rid of a bad case of mastitis.
Ever since then we have been battling thrush. The longest period of time without it has been 1-2 months after we both took difulcan. I took a heavy dose with 4 difulcan the first day and 1 pill 2 times a day for 14 days after that. We have taken nystatin which doesn't touch it, viniger rinses, Sun Bathing my breast, probiotics, and most recently gentian violet which cured it right away. I have put him on organic baby yogert to try and build up the good bactiria ...which seem to have helped but I now see TEE TINY White spot like its trying to come back. I currently have no symptoms of the thrush, however, I think maybe I am carrying it in my body and that is why he keeps getting it.
I am going to try and change my diet to as little as possible sugar intake and take GSE for both of us. But beyond that I don't know what else to do. Do you have any experience with a similar problem and something that finally cured it for you and your baby? I would love some imput!
