Re: Did your Thrush go away on its own?

Doesn't go away on its own. I had it for 6 months with dd1 before finally treating us both with diflucan--it was the only thing that would work. Then I got it with dd2 so I gave her nystatin and went straight for the diflucan myself--I wasn't willing to go through this again for 6 months! But like pp's said, there are a lot of non-prescription things you can try. Gentian violet is over the counter and works for a lot of people. Also putting gynalotramin on your breasts (be sure to wash it off before breastfeeding). And all the more holistic remidies are helpful too.
