If you have an infant who has oral thrush this is an old remedy but it only works with breastfeed infants. Use breastfed infant urine from cloth diaper or paper towel (just not the moisture absorbing gel diapers) and rub it on the infants tongue and around the mouth. I know it sounds disgusting but breastfed infant urine contains ammonia which kills off the bacteria and it is perfectly safe. I used it for my 2 month old daughter at the first sign of thrush and it was gone almost 2 days later.

I don't think I would actually try this, as I myself wouldn't want to have urine in my mouth so I wouldn't do it to my baby... But urine is actually sterile when it is fresh, so you woulsnt have to worry about bacterial infections etc

People used to do a lot of crazy things a long time ago. Why in the world would you think putting pee in your baby's mouth? That is the most disgusting thing. That should be considered child abuse.

SAY WHAT YOU WANT NAYSAYERS BUT IT WORKS!!! AND IT GETS RID OF IT FAST AND MY BABY DIDN'T HAVE TO SUFFER! GROWN FOLKS USE URINE ON THEIR FACE TO GET RID OF ACNE AND ALL!! IF WE WOULD GO BACK TO SOME OF THE REMEDIES THAT OUR GRANDPARENTS USED, IT WOULDN'T BE SO MANY SIDE EFFECTS AND OTHER FOOLISHNESS GOING ON WITH PEOPLE TAKING SO MANY MEDICINES TODAY...SMH!! ANYWAY TO EACH HIS OWN...

I'm a nurse and I have four kids... Urine is sterile which is why if your in a crisis with no water any Dr. Will tell you to drink your own pee if you have no water and want to live!! Anyway I breast fed all my children and when they got thrush urine worked every time and quick. I'd much rather use it than a bunch of antibiotics and mouth wash on a newborn baby....

Think before you speak

For all those ignorant people who keep assuming urine is unhygienic, think again! Of course you wouldn't you feces from a baby but clean urine? Why not?

I wonder if this would work on nipples with thrush...? A breastfeeding mom inquires.

All u people making dumb comments, maybe if u research u would learn something! Ur urine is actually really sterile! What the hell do u think people did back in the day when all these medications weren't available?!?! When my baby had it the doctor prescribed every medicine they have and NOTHIBG worked! My mother in law used his urine and it was completely gone the next day! Goes to show medication isn't always the answer!!

Thrush is from a Yeast Infection not a bacterial one. And while urine is useful in jelly fish stings I would Not Recommend this to anyone.

Urine still within the bladder is sterile. Once it's outside they body, it's not. Sorry to burst your bubble! Not saying your method doesn't work. Yeast infections are caused by lack of good bacteria. The candida takes over. So when you put the urine there, you add bacteria back. However, putting urine in anyone's mouth is a terrible risk!! You should NOT do it. You could actually make your child very ill. If people did their research they would see that is why the use of urine in medicine has stopped (well at least by safe and sane medical professionals)
