Violet, you're turning violet, Violet!

This is what my kids looked like yesterday, and this was after most of it wore off during the night and morning. They both had thrush, and I had gotten it too on my, uh, "nursies." It was getting really bad on Hudson's bottom, and mine was so bad that I had two cracks, so I said "enough's enough." The natural remedies that I was trying weren't getting the job done, so I turned to Gentian Violet. It took care of the thrush in their mouths and on me, but I and Hudson's bottom are still healing. Gentian Violet is the "big gun" when it comes to thrush care, and I hated that I had to turn to it, but it was really bad. As you can tell, it stains everything a pretty violet color. It stains mouths, skin, clothes, blankies, you name it.

And for your daily smile, I just had to share this picture of Libby after she finished drinking her yogurt out of a cup.
Have a wonderful day!

I'm so glad it is helping! I am curious, just because I thought Gentian Violet was a natural remedy...why is it not?
(hahaha, I have to tell you...my 'word verification' for my comment is 'mallieness' how hilarious is that!?)

That's so funny and so random and I'm sure those same letters won't ever appear together here again, and definitely not for you, Mallie's mama. You're right, I didn't mean to imply that GV is not natural, becaues it is. I guess what I meant to say was that I had tried other non-medicine remedies. GV is natural, but very very potent.
