What is thrush?
Thrush is a yeast infection that grows in moist places, such as in the folds of a baby’s skin. It appears as red, irritated patches on the neck, armpits, and thighs; and as white patches on the tongue and insides of the cheeks. It can also appear as a diaper rash that is difficult to clear. When thrush spreads to a nursing mother’s milk ducts, it can make nursing painful. The nipples are red, itchy, cracked, and sometimes have white patches. We use Oregon Grape Root and Myrrh in our Diaper Rash & Thrush salve; as both are antibacterial, antifungal, and very effective on a yeast caused diaper rash. Although it is safe to use on nursing nipples, we do not recommend putting it directly into your baby’s mouth.
Is the Diaper Rash & Thrush safe to use with cloth diapers?
Yes! Diaper Rash & Thrush does not contain zinc oxide, a common ingredient in diaper rash creams. This white substance creates a moisture barrier that can cause cloth diapers to not be as absorbent. Diaper Rash & Thrush is cloth diaper-safe. Though like always we recommend a liner.
