Baby and I have thrush right now but it doesn't look bad. Just one patch in his cheek. He also has what looks like a blister on the inside of each corner of the lip when I inspet. Not the gums but actual inside the lips. He is SO fussy constantly. He doesn't act like he has a cold. And isn't throwing up or having any poopie issues. Can thrush be this painful?? What could be the cause of blisters?

Thrush can be very painful for babies? Are you treating both of you at the same time?

Poor little Benji. :( I never knew it could cause so much distress. We both are being treated. Nystain cream and the liquid kind for baby.

Ouch! Bless her heart. That is what Ben is doing too. We are treating me and him both with Nystain. Cream and liquid.

Ditch the nystatin! It is known for actually making thrush worse because it contains sugar that feeds the yeast. Genetian violet, grapefruit seed extract, vinegar, and coconut oil are common over the counter treatments for thrush.

I had heard of these but didn't know how to use them. Do you rub it on the area or is it something they swallow?

You can put it on your nipples right before nursing and treat both of you at the same time.

Wow that's cool! And MUCH easier than what I was doing with the Nystain. He HATES getting it squirted into his cheek. Fussy baby PLUS ticked off baby = Migraine. Thanks so much for this! :) Which have you found works best?
