Q: 

my 2mnth old daughter is having thrush in the mouth.it is also inside her cheeks around the lips

A: She will need medicine to take care of it. Though my little one is now 20 months old I remember when she had thrush. As for the diaper rash I suggest using A&D ointment. Works fast on diaper rash. My daughter had thrush also. the ped did give me some medication that I used a qtip to swab in her mouth twice a day. And during this time she also had very bad diaper rash. Your daughters diaper rash might actually be caused from a yeast infection. Talk to your ped. But mine suggested to me to try and use any over the counter yeast infection cream (monistat) when I changed her diaper. Triple paste as a butt cream works best now for my daughter!...


Q: 

How to get rid of horrible taste that comes with thrush in the mouth?

A: It is very important that you see the doctor who wrote your prescription for you and let him/her know that it is not working. Do not try to self-medicate. Get to the source of the problem and treat it properly. Oral yeast infections are often a symptom of an underlying condition, not the central condition. My guess is that you know that already. AIDS is certainly high on the list of conditions that can instigate oral yeast infections. Please get tested if you have not already. I wish you much luck in the improvement of your health and I sincerely hope that the disease that caused your yeast infection is soon...

Q:
