  • NO! It needs to be treated, and it can be really hard to get rid of if it really takes hold! The best info on treating it is here: Thrush/Candida Treatment Protocol

  • No it doesnt go away on its own, trush is the same thing as a yeast infection but its in the mouth, call and tell them you want diflucan. It is just one pill and it works great. I usually get it after stopping an antibiotic.

  • OMG thrush. Ugh the painful irritating nasty infection. I remember it well. My daughter was breastfeeding and we are clean people but developed thrush. We used this nasty goopy sticky stuff that she swallowed and I applied to my nipples for like months. It kept coming back. Finally after what seemed like forever, but probably only a few months it went away and never came back. Use the difflucan as someone suggested and the sticky stuff(pedi will know) and wash constantly with soap and water - rinse babies mouth with washcloth and water after each feeding. I totally commiserate with you. Keep the faith it will get better.
