TikTok stopped me dead in my tracks the other day when I saw this video:
BuzzFeed also spoke to a senior medical director at WebMD, Dr. Hansa Bhargava, to get a little more information about thrush. «Thrush is a yeast infection that anyone can get, usually caused by Candida albicans. It causes vaginal infections in women, but it is also prevalent in babies. In babies, it causes whitish plaques in the mouth and can make them fussy,» Bhargava said.
So, what made Christel’s baby’s mouth turn so purple? It was the medicine used to treat thrush, called Gentian Violet. «This is an antifungal medicine that helps get rid of the infection — it is used several times a day in a baby’s mouth for about 10 days. It does have a ‘violet’ color, so it can look purple,» Bhargava explained.
Мысль на память: Не переживайте, если вам придется отказаться от хорошего в пользу лучшего.
