In the air: The organism causing thrush is present in the environment. The child is going through a phase in her immune system, where she is less able to handle the organism. Almost all kids outgrow this phase.

My doctor prescribed zpack for my thrush and yeast infection, he isnt sure if it's syphilis or thrush? Does that sound right?

Zpack: You should get a second opinion. Penicillin is the best treatment for syphilis but for those patients allergic to penicillin, Azithromycin ( zpack) is given as a 2 gram single dose. Thrush is treated differently. You should have a blood test for syphilis.

Can a thrush yeast infection hurt my baby if not treated?

Can a thrush yeast infection hurt my baby if not treated?

Depends on variables: Many infants with a thin skim milk layer of thrush would do fine without treatment and remain asymptomatic.Some will develop enough irritation to the same mucous membranes inside the cheeks and lips that it will bleed occasionally and the kids will fuss during feedings.I routinely treat them all but realize that for many it is transient and may clear on its own.

I think i'm having thrush and a yeast infection at the same time, what could be the cause? I've made no changes to diet and not on any antibiotics.

I think i'm having thrush and a yeast infection at the same time, what could be the cause? I've made no changes to diet and not on any antibiotics.

Same thing: Thrush is a yeast infection - just of your mouth/mucous membranes. While use of antibiotics is one risk factor, many things can cause yeast to be over-abundant. We all have a mix of yeast and bacteria on our skin and mucous membranes. If this balance get changed for any reason - illness, stress, use of too much antibacterial cleaners - the yeast can take over. Get treatment for what you have.

Thrush: Thrush is a yeast infection in the mouth. Candida is the name of the yeast. Cystitis is a bladder infection, which could be a viral infection, bacterial infection or a yeast infection. Yeast infection just means that you have an infection from yeast and it could be just about anywhere.
