Frequently Asked Questions

What is oral thrush?

Oral thrush is a fungal infection, which are also known as yeast infections, that affects your mouth, tongue, and throat.

 

It’s caused by a kind of fungus, or yeast, called Candida, which is the same type of fungi that causes genital thrush and other fungal infections in the body.

 

Candida naturally occurs in your body but is usually kept in check by the good bacteria you produce.

 

If this system is put out of balance, (for example, if you’re taking antibiotics or getting chemotherapy) then Candida can grow and thrive, causing a thrush infection.

 

Thrush is no fun no matter where you get it, but luckily, it’s a common and usually harmless condition.

How do you treat oral thrush?

You can treat oral thrush with Daktarin, a sugar-free oral gel that contains the antifungal ingredient miconazole.

 

As oral thrush is a fungal infection, miconazole will destroy the fungi so your infection can clear up as quickly as possible.

 

Has your baby or child got oral thrush? No problem, Daktarin can be used on babies from 4 months and older.

Is oral thrush contagious?

Oral thrush in adults isn’t contagious and can’t be passed on through close contact like kissing, for example.

 

However, if your baby has come down with oral thrush and you’re breastfeeding, they can transfer it onto the mother to cause nipple thrush.

When do you treat oral thrush in babies?

If your baby has oral thrush, usually no treatment is needed and the infection will clear on its own after a few days.

 

If their thrush isn’t clearing, a doctor or pharmacist may recommend an antifungal treatment like Daktarin which contains the active ingredient miconazole to clear the infection.

 

This should be applied to the affected areas in your baby’s mouth after they’ve been fed.
