I suspected that I might have thrush so I borrowed some gentian violet from a friend and used it last night.
I'm annoyed with myself for giving my DD something that I hadn't really thoroughly researched.
What exactly is gentian violet? Are there any risks/side effects? My DD is almost 3 months old.
On the bottle it says for external use only, and I've seen a few things on the internet that suggest it might not be safe.
I didn't check into it thoroughly because it was recommended on these boards and at LLL, which both tend to be "crunchy" and leaning towards natural methods of treating illness.
Also I knew it would stain DD's mouth, but i didnt expect it to be quite so dark! How long does it take for the purple to fade?
