My almost 3 week old has thrush and I have some gentian violet. I have used it twice today on him and applied it once to myself. I'm not sure how often I'm supposed to use it and didn't want to over do it. Do any of you ladies have any idea how often I'm supposed to apply it? Thanks!!

Only once a day for both mother and baby.  Make sure you are using a 1% solution otherwise it can result in mouth ulcers post treatment for baby.

It is the 1% and thanks! I only used it once yesterday for him.
