Just wondering whether anybody had a baby with oral thrush and it got better without treatment? My ds2 was diagnosed with oral thrush about 5 weeks ago as he had a couple of spots on the roof of his mouth. I started treatment with miconazole gel but it's just got a lot worse and now his tongue is completely white.
He's also developed nappy rash so I've been using canesten which clears it up but when I stop it comes back. I've been back to gp, asked paed and pharmacist and they all just say keep using the gel.
I'm a bit fed up now as its been about 5 weeks and I'm just wondering if I just give up and see if it clears up. The oral thrush doesn't appear to be bothering him and I feel I'm keeping on top of the nappy rash. I'm not using bottles and I'm sterilising his dummies by boiling in water for 5 mins. I've got no symptoms myself but have been trying to apply gel before feeding but admit that I havnt been good at doing it every feed so guessing that's why things are not improving.
