Hey Ladies,



My daughter was taking antibiotics for Impetigo and as a result has a white mouth. Could this be a yeast infection or thrush and if so will yogurt help?

I have to agree that definatly sounds like thrush. The only thing to help is another antibiotic. But don't give any yogurt. The natural yeast in the yogurt can bring on another infection.

sounds like thrush mouth. my son had it at a week old. the antibiotics that i was given during labour was passed onto him which gave him thrush. we had to get a prescription for it. wasnt an antibiotic though. i know they used to give gentian (i think thats how it's spent) violet which you dont even need a prescrption for. it's this purple stuff that you put in their mouth and it stains like crazy! when my son had it any place i went to told me they didnt make it anymore. this is in ottawa ont though. where you are may be different. yogurt i have no idea about. i'd take her to the doctor though and get them to check it. actually a good way to describe it is it looks like cottage cheese. if thats what the white spots in her mouth look like then it's more than likely thrush. i'd take her though and have it looked at.

I REALLY hope so!!! It breaks my heart to hear her crying because she sees her medicine dropper.

TALK WITH YOUR DOCTOR TO SEE IF THERE ARE OTHER OPTION THAT DOESNT INCLUDE MEDS. THERE HAS TO BE SOMETHING...

I just didn't want to give her MORE meds!! She's so frustrated with taking medicine and I can't blame her.
