Put a small amount of 1% Gentian Violet on a Q-tip and apply it to the affected areas of your baby's mouth. Reapply when baby's mouth is no longer purple, and continue for a week or so or until the thrush is gone.

i have used this on two of my babys and it does work.

One of my granddaughters had a bad case of thrush when she was a baby. We took her to the doctor several times and whatever he prescribed didn't work; that's probably why I don't remember what he prescribed. Finally, out of desperation, we took her to a different doctor. She prescribed tincture of violet. We had to go to 2 or 3 different pharmacies to find it but it worked amazingly well! Of course she looked rather strange with purple/black lips and tongue but it was worth it!
