Thrush Monster! Help!

My 11 week old son has been battling with what we were told was thrush.  He has a white coating on the middle to back of his tongue.  It is pretty far back, so it is difficult to try and wipe off, There are no white patches on his gums, lips or cheeks, and he has never developed a diaper rash.  His feeding has not been affected, he eats great.  We have tried multiple treatments.  Nystatin, 20 day course of diflucan, gentian violet, grapefruit seed extract.  I have spent hundreds of dollars on new bottles/nipples/pacis.  We boil them after each use as well. 

He shows no sign of anything else such as an immunodefficiency. He has no fevers, gaining weight appropriately (14lbs), he is not fussy.  Is there a chance that this is just a white tongue from a milk diet?

TIA

  • My daughter had thrush for about 4 months and it was a PITA.  We went through rounds and rounds of medication and nothing seemed to help, although she did have spots on her gums and cheeks.  I swear it finally went away once we were able to i

  • I have a feeling we'll be going in at the end of this round of Meds. At least he doesn't seem uncomfortable because of it.
