You can dilute it to 1% with distiller water.

Good luck with feeling better!
Thrush is hard to diagnose without the telltale white patches in baby's mouth. But DS doesn't get the white patches until its really bad. Gentian violet and GSE and vinegar cleared us up pretty fast. Check out Dr. Jack Newmans website about thrush, he has lots of info!
