The title sort of says it all.
We've tried everything. Nystatan, Gentian Violet (three separate rounds), vinegar, probiotics, elimination...
and somehow it just won't Go!
My LO is only 3 months, but we've had it basically for the past six weeks. I am not bothered, and she doesn't seem to be either. Her tongue just looks like a mini snowstorm landed on it.
Does any body have any ideas?
Have you tried miconazole? Gel for baby's mouth, cream for you. This is the standard protocol for treatment in the UK. (http://www.breastfeedingnetwork.org.uk/pdfs/BfN_Thrush_leaflet_Feb_2009.pdf) If you do ask your HCP about miconazole, be sure to read up about its use in babies under 4 months.
That said, have you had a definite diagnosis of thrush? Could it be something else? Some lactation specialists suggest that thrush which doesn't respond to treatment isn't thrush, although I wouldn't go that far in your case until miconazole has been tried. You say it doesn't bother you - thrush is typically rather painful. I do hope you aren't suffering too much!
I hope you get this sorted out soon. Let us know how you get on!
