Hi. LO and I have suspected thrush (neither of us have severe symptoms but hv and dr agree it's likely). Last week I was prescribed canesten cream and, after encouragement from the hv, went back today to get prescription for LO. I've been given Daktarin gel. From what I read this is the right thing for her but I'm a bit nervous about giving it to her now. The pharmacist told me they don't normally give it to babies under 4 months because it can thicken in the mouth and be a choking hazard. He told me to watch her closely for 5 - 10 minutes after putting it on. The accompanying leaflet also says "do not use the medicine on infants under 4 months old". What are people's experiences? Has anyone had choking problems with it?
