What is oral Thrush?

Oral thrush is usually harmless. It’s common in babies and older people with dentures. It can be easily treated with medicines bought from a pharmacy.

ADULTS

Other symptoms in adults are:

  • cracks at the corners of the mouth
  • not tasting things properly
  • an unpleasant taste in the mouth
  • pain inside the mouth (for example, a sore tongue or sore gums)
  • difficulty eating and drinking

Oral thrush in adults is not contagious.

BABIES

Other symptoms in babies are:

  • they do not want to feed
  • nappy rash

Babies can pass oral thrush on through breastfeeding. This can cause nipple thrush in mothers.

IF YOU’RE NOT SURE IT’S ORAL THRUSH

Look at other causes of a white or sore tongue.

Oral thrush can be easily treated with a mouth gel bought from a pharmacy. The gel is suitable for adults, children and babies over the age of 4 months.

Ask your pharmacist for advice. Always follow the instructions on the medicine packet.

If you leave oral thrush untreated, the infection can spread to other parts of the body.

HOW YOU CAN PREVENT ORAL THRUSH

Thrush is an infection caused by a fungus called Candida. Some things can make the fungus grow more than usual.

You might get thrush if you’re:

  • taking antibiotics over a long time
  • using asthma inhalers
  • getting cancer treatment like chemotherapy

There are some things you can do to help prevent oral thrush:

DO

  • take care of your teeth: brush twice a day, clean your dentures, and go for regular check-ups even if you have dentures

  • brush your gums and tongue with a soft toothbrush if you do not have any teeth

  • sterilise dummies regularly

  • sterilise bottles after each use

  • rinse your mouth after eating or taking medicine

  • go to regular check-ups if you have a long-term condition like diabetes

DON’T

  • do not wear your dentures at night

  • do not keep wearing dentures if they do not fit properly – see your dentist

  • do not smoke

How To Use

Always use Daktarin oral gel exactly as your doctor has told you. You should check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.
How to apply the gel
• Each tube of the gel is sealed – use the cap to pierce the seal
• For oral use only
• Keep the gel in the mouth as long as possible. Do not swallow it straight away
• If the infection is just in the mouth, apply directly to the affected area with a clean finger
• If you are wearing dentures, remove them at bedtime and rub them with the gel. This helps stop your dentures becoming infected too
• Do not use more than the stated dose
• Use after meals
• If you are giving the gel to a child or infant aged 4 months or over, make sure that the gel does not become a choking hazard by making sure you place the gel at the front of the mouth
How much gel to use
Your doctor will tell you how much Daktarin oral gel to take and for how long you should take it. Your doctor will probably suggest the following treatment course:
Infections of the mouth and throat:
• Adults and Children over 2 years: 2.5 ml (half a 5ml spoonful) of gel applied four times a day after food.

Infants 4 months – 2 years: 1.25 ml (one quarter of a 5 ml spoonful) of gel applied four times a day after food. Each application should be divided into smaller portions.
If the infant is 4-6 months old, and is premature or has slow development, check with your doctor before using this medicine
If symptoms persist, talk to your doctor.
When to stop using Daktarin oral gel
Keep using the gel for at least a week after all the symptoms have gone away. This will stop the symptoms from coming back.
If you forget a dose
• Do not apply the missed dose of gel
• Apply the next dose of gel as usual and keep using it as your doctor has told you
• Do not use a double dose of gel to make up for a missed dose
If you use more Daktarin oral gel than you should
If you use more Daktarin oral gel than you were told to or if someone else has taken any, talk to a doctor or go to the nearest hospital casualty department straight away.
If you have any further questions on the use of this product, ask your doctor or pharmacist

infant.
