It usually lessened pretty quickly and gone completely in a few days once I started using the gel on my nipples and the drops in DD's mouth. Are you treating both? The pain is horrible!

I've been putting it on just before feeds (so she gets some) and just after. I was told I can't treat her directly as she is only 3wks old and could choke on the gel?

Have you had a look at the royal women's hospital clinical guidelines for thrush treatment? I found it really helpful as my GP wasn't completely knowledgeable. It discusses alternatives to the gel for infants (though drops aren't as effective apparently). If you google search the PDF should come up.
It's got a great algorithm describing timeframes for reassessment and further treatment options too.

I needed the daktarin cream for myself, daktarin gel for bub.and tablets. As Sajimum suggested, google the thrush treatment update from The Women's hospital and print that out and take to the GP.

If it doesn't clear quickly it may be a staph infection

It may also be a different strain of fungal infection which needs a different treatment.
Good luck. I hated thrush.
