Question: 40 day old baby got oral thrush homeremedy plz
Answer: Hello Dear, In many cases no medical treatment is needed. But still, I suggest you to consult your doctor. However, If the fungus is not widespread or severe, you can try any of the home remedies : Probiotics found in yogurt and breastmilk are a great place to start. If your baby is too young for yogurt there are safe probiotics for infants that you can look into. Eat yogurt that contains Lactobacillus acidophilus live bacteria cultures or take them in pills. Probiotics have been effective and harmless for babies too. Acidophilus powder : Acidophilus is a powdered form of the good bacteria. Make a paste by combining acidophilus powder with clean water or breastmilk. Rub this paste in the baby's mouth once daily until the thrush clears up. You can also add one teaspoon of acidophilus powder to formula or breastmilk if the child is bottle feeding. Administer acidophilus once daily until the thrush clears up. Grapefruit Seed Extract : Mix 10 drops with one ounce of filtered water. (Do not use tap water; it can make the treatment less effective.) Apply it in your baby’s mouth and your own nipples once every hour and also before every feeding in your baby’s mouth and after every feeding on your nipples. Sodium bicarbonate : Blend half teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate (available in chemist) in half cup of plain water. Use a cotton swab to coat the inside of your baby’s mouth. You should do this after every breastfeeding (if you breastfeed) or as often as you can do it. Coat your nipples too, since that may help the fungus go away faster. Virgin coconut oil : Coconut oil which may help fight the yeast infection that causes thrush. Use a clean cotton swab to apply coconut oil to the affected area. Saltwater solution : Mix 1/2 teaspoon of salt in one cup of warm water. Then apply the solution affected area using a clean cotton swab. Reduce bottle time : Prolonged sucking on a bottle's nipple may irritate your infant's mouth, making him more prone to an oral yeast infection. Limit bottle time to 20 minutes per meal. Wash toys, pacifiers and breast pumps : To avoid new infections; make sure to wash your baby’s toys, pacifiers, and bottles. It is best if you sterilize them in boiling water for at least five minutes or if you use an electric steam sterilizer. You should sterilize all these things after every use while your baby’s treatment is going on. Air-dry your nipples : Yeast fungus loves moist, warmth and sugar. Stop the fungus from growing on your nipples by washing them and letting them air-dry after breastfeeding as often as you can.
