Is this thrush??? I have pictures lol

Ok, my son is 6m old.. and we arent having any nursing problems.. other than easily distracted by his big sister... and a little bit of teething..

but I have noticed these white patches on both sides of his mouth... it wont rub off not easily anyway... ( not like I can get in there and scrub it lol ) so it was all I could do to get a picture of the inside of these fat ol' cheeks lol... so tell me... do you think it's thrush?

Looks like it. If it isn't bothering you or him I don't know that I would bother treating it, though.

Re: Is this thrush??? I have pictures lol

Sure is, not fun. We've been battling thrush with my 5mos. off/on since she was about 3 weeks. I have not treated myself at all, since I have not had any symptoms. We tried a couple of treatments, including GV, which worked great while on it, but as soon as we stopped the thrush came back. We've decided to stop treating, ok'd by the pedi, and just let it run it's course. It went away a couple of weeks ago, and then she got a cold, now it's back, mild though.
It's worth giving GV a try, if it works for you great!!
Good luck

Please treat it NOW! The longer you go, the harder it will be to get rid of and likely the longer it goes it will start to cause some uncomfy-ness for both of you.

I would say yes! My son (Mason, ds#1) had it when he was a baby. It took a while before I even noticed he had it. In fact, I didn't notice he had it until I started having a TON of pain when we were nursing. (He was my first, and I didn't know what thrush was!)

I would hurry and treat it before it spreads to you and gets worse. Also, make sure you disinfect EVERYTHING!

Yup, that's definitely thrush. DS had it ALL OVER his mouth when he was born and it took us almost 2 months to get rid of it all.
