ok this is going to sound crazy but it's a legit question about spreading the thrush infection adult content

our daughter has thrush, she's taking medicine for it. anyway she likes to suck on fingers. my husband just texted me from work cause he has some kind of rash on his upper inner thigh. he said that he thinks he scratched himself before washing his hands after he let our daughter suck on his fingers. could this have happened? i know thrush bacteria (yeast) is the same bacteria that causes diaper rashes and ik that it's often spread to mother's nipples if the baby is breastfed so could this have happened?

  • Adults are immune to thrush. We build a tolerance to it after a year old I believe. In a rare case he may have it, but it is not serious. Just need an antibiotic and dont scratch.

  • Triple anti-biotic ointment may help.
