Okay ladies, I need your help...this is a tough one
I live in Poland and we have some drugs and medications that are in the US and some different ones. That being said, I had hubby go to the pharmacy today to see if they had Gentian violet because we have thrush. Im using probiotics and GSE right now, but if things dont change in a week, (Ive been using it two days so far) then I wanted to use the GV. Everyone who works in the pharmacies here has to have a masters degree in pharmacuticals. They have a lot of knowldge, but are not doctors. The pharmacist recommended something called Sodium Tincalconite in place of the GV. She said its safe for babies and is used just like GV for the treatment of thrush, but it doesnt stain. She said its NOT the same thing but is just as effective. Thing is, I did some researh online and I CANNOT find anything that said its been used for breastfeeding mothers to treat thrush. ITs sometimes used to treat thrush in horses hooves. Thats the closest thing I coulde find. I saw that its used in pesticides and household cleaners though, and I cant believe it can also be used in a baby's mouth! Have any of you heard of this or can anyone find any information that its also used to treat thrush in breastfeeding mothers? Any information would be helpful. Thanks ladies! I know that GV isnt the greatest thing for babies either, but Im not going to use the sodium tincalconite unless i can find good info on it.
