white spots on her cheeks and white tongue

by lala

My daughter who is 3 months old has been on nystatin for two weeks, it doesn't seem to help she had white spots on her cheeks and white tongue and now the white spots on her checks seems like they fused together to make a bigger one and looks more like cottage cheese.

Is it safe if i try the baking soda solution on her? ... i don't have any of the symptoms for moms with thrush rather than itchiness and like if someone is pinching me on the inside so far am doing the vinegar solution

Patches of skin missing on baby's tongue

by concerned mom

Is it normal for my sons tongue to have patches that look like the skin is missing?

I've taken care of children, but never seen this before. I'm very concerned about this.

See your doctor
by: Tracy

I would definitely recommend that you see your pediatrician about this. He might be allergic to something. Are you breastfeeding exclusively?

Thrush on baby,yeast infection on mom

My LO has had thrush for about 3 weeks now, dr. First prescribed gentian violet for baby and myself but that only seemed to have made things worse for him and myself.

Went back to the dr. And was prescribed nystatin for him, which seems to be working as I've been giving it to him 4 times a day for now 10 days. And dr. Prescribed diflucan for myself, which seems to have helped.

My question is: when is it safe to breastfeed again without the infection being passed back and forth between us, like I said my LO has minimal thrush now and my nipples seem to feel better.

You don't need to stop breastfeeding
by: Tracy

You do not need to stop breastfeeding at all. During a thrush infection the breastfeeding relationship should continue while the mom and baby are treated together to prevent cross contamination. Stopping can just lead to other issues such as mastitis and a low milk supply.
