Xander was on two powerful antibiotics at birth. Gentamiacin and Ampicillin were given for suspision of sepsis because he was preterm and having tons oof trouble breathing.
Within about 10 days he got a nasty, nasty yeast infection down below and luckily with the right compound prescription from the doc, that has come and gone. As soon as that was on the mend, the thrush came on. He has been on the medication since 2/14 (two weeks today) and it is still here. It has gotten better and then got worse while still on the medication. I have been steralizing his bottle nipples after each feed and he gets the medication every 6 hours. He doesn't take a paci so I am not concerned about that.
The doctor wrote "for 15 days" on the script but gave two refills. Do I need to call the office and let him know that it has been just about 15 days and he is no where near cleared up? He did say that the effects of the antibiotics could last for sometime because of his size.
He is on Nystatin, anyone know of something different that he may prescribe since this isn't cutting it?
