How can I quickly treat thrush? I have been using the product for 10 days now.

Postnatal, Your questions

My six-week-old child has thrush. I have the product that I apply to my breasts because I am breastfeeding. But I have been using it for 10 days, and I was wondering if it’s effective. Is there a faster way to treat thrush? Chantal


Chantal, I don’t know if you are using the liquid product, but cream can also help (Monistat, Canesten), as it stays on your breasts longer. You should have seen changes after 10 days. Usually, you should see an improvement after 3. You can read When Fungal Infections Arrive for more information.
