DD has had a rash around her mouth for a week or so that seems to get worse through out the day but clears up at night. At first I thought it was just irritation from drooling so much lately but over the weekend she wasn't drooling as much and she still had it, although not quite as bad. She doesn't have any white on her tongue and I don't seem to have any symptoms (although I was a little sore yesterday but she nursed ALOT yesterday). Could it be thrush? If not any other ideas? It doesn't seem to bother her but I would like clear it up. I haven't called the ped. yet but might tomorrow if it's not better.

Blake had a rash on his mouth last week. It was like small red dots. I think it was from drooling, pacifier use, etc. I don't think it is thrush. Does she have a diaper rash? Any pain in your breasts?

Try wiping it with warm water and keeping it as dry as possible. At least that is what I think.

Yeah it's small red dots. It probably is from the drooling. She doesn't have a diaper rash and I haven't really had any pain. Thanks

PROBABLY not. Keep an eye out for signs though of course
