Oral thrush..

I was at a birthday party and my friends daughter was crying and i noticed that she had trhush. Well, when i wasnt looking my son drank from her sippy one time. I have heard that thrush is contagious. I am just wondering to what extent? Do we think my son could get it? Or is there a low probability. Thanks mamas :)

  • Just keep an eye out... or if you are worried, pick up some gentian violet and pre-treat him.

  • you could probably use listerine on him too. just brush his mouth with it then have him spit it out.

    just keep an eye out for any stuff in his mouth and as soon as you notice something, take him to the doctor.
