It helped tremendously for my daughter and I. We tried everything that the doctor prescribed and it continued on. I tried GV at the pedi's suggestion and we were thrush free within a few days, symptom free in a matter of hours. Just be prepared for the purple staining.

Quoting McLovin':" Anyone ever use it on their infant? I took antibiotics and the pedi is pretty sure that's why the baby has mild thrush. Did it help?"

Baby will have a super stained mouth/face for a while... but it works wonderfully. I definitely recommend it.

Quoting McLovin':" Good to know! Thank you! Did you give it to her orally once a day?"



I dipped a q-tip in it and swabbed her mouth twice a day and as needed if she was struggling at a particular feed.

It worked for DS. We used it twice a day for 3 days but I have internal thrush so I have to get a prescription for diflucan

I used Oxy clean from the blue spray bottle on the purple staining.. Let it soak it overnight and the purple staining will disappear! It worked amazing for my son, within 2 days *second time trying it* It was pretty much gone!

Gentian violet can cause cancer. I used grapefruit seed extract in her mouth and on my nipples. Much safer and less messy.
