Not sure about daktarin gel...

I have gotten thrush, and vinegar worked best for me! After every feeding I rinsed my nipples with vinegar. I sanitized everything that came ino contact with my nipples, and my baby's mouth. Also, swabbed my baby's mouth with plain organic yogurt a few times a day, and ate the yogurt myself, along with some acidophilus supplements. After weeks of some ointment and medicine the doctor gave me(which did nothing to clear the thrush) this is the only thing that helped! Hope you find something that works, thrush is such a pain!

I would use it more than once a day, as the vinegar kills bacteria anyway. You should dilute it with some water and just rinse your nipples after feeding and throughout the day.. And keep checking to see if it is in your baby's mouth too! The white patches. It grows fast, and is hard to get rid of, so you wanna try and not spread it. I dealt with thrush for 2 months!!! And 7 of those 8 weeks I was using creams&.ointments from the doctor, and finally the vinegar got rid of it. Along with the acidophilus. And cut out sugar/wheat from my diet. I hope you beat the thrush quickly!
