Does anyone know how to get rid of thrush??? Ben and I have been passing it back and forth for more than a month now. I cannot get rid of it! We've tried Gentian violet, Nystatin, Terconazole, (I'm allergic to Monostat), and yogurt. We've had yeast infections over and over, and now, I'm peeling, cracked, and bleeding, so Ben has had to wean some. I have just nursed him until I couldn't take it, but I'm to the point where even thinking about nursing makes me want to cry. I have seriously broken down twice now just thinking about nursing him. So there I am, holding my son and we're both bawling. He's mad because I won't nurse him, and I'm heartbroken because I can't! Please, anyone out there in internet land, HELP!!!

I found this info in WebMD.com:

Prescription medications
Polyenes (such as Mycostatin and Fungizone)
Azoles (such as Diflucan, Monistat, Mycelex, Nizoral, and Sporanox)
Chlorhexidine (such as Peridex)

Hope it helps!
