Thrush is something that can appear in many areas of the body, even the mouth. It is related to the infection that appears as diaper rash and doctors will usually prescribe a medication to help get rid of it.

If you are looking for natural remedies for thrush in your child’s mouth, you will be happy to learn that there are some options. One of the best things that you can use to treat thrush when it is in your child’s mouth is vinegar. You can put a small amount in the mouth by using a cotton swab.

Another option is to use baking soda. Make a mixture of baking soda and water and use a cotton swab to apply it to the inside of your child’s mouth. It is important that you continue this every day and that you make a fresh batch of baking soda and water every time that you treat your child.

In order to prevent thrush from spreading, you should make sure that you are washing cups that your child uses carefully before someone else uses them. You can also add a little bit of white vinegar in with your clothes so that you can kill off any hidden bacteria that are found there.
