Does it get better?

I took my DD to the doctor yesterday and she has a very mild case of thrush. It started out as 2 little white spots on her lips, and I've been giving her the medicine that the doctor ordered for her, only for a day so far..but she's getting more spots on her lips. Does it get worse before it gets better, or should I wait out the 10 day medicine period before I call them back?

  • i just finished the medicine with my daughter and her thrush started clearing up right away..i would just call and make sure..or give it another day or 2 and see what happens, if it dont get better then call.

  • I'd wait out the treatment course.
    Also thrush hurts so be sure to give her pain meds if she seems to be in pain.
