I noticed that my lil guy had white spots all over the inside of his mouth so I took him to the doctor today and he has thrush..
I inquired w/ the doctor as to what may have caused this and pretty much all I got was "Its really common in babies because yeast like warm moist environments.."
First question.. has anyone else's child/children had thrush?
So, I was expecting they'd give him Nystatin to clear it up, but instead the doctor comes back in with some BRIGHT purple stuff called Gentian Violet and swabs it all over the inside of his mouth.. and now my poor little guy literally has a PURPLE mouth and lips.. its kinda freaky looking..
So next question.. has anyone else had their child's thrush treated with gentian violet?
I'd never really heard of it before and its kinda alarming to see your child with a purple mouth.. According to the doctor he'll be purple for a good few days :roll:
