The first step in treating thrush is to get an accurate diagnosis from your healthcare provider. There is no reliable lab test for thrush. If your doctor diagnoses thrush, it is essential for both you and your baby to be treated for thrush at the same time, even if only one of you has symptoms. Yeast is easily spread and thrives in warm moist environments such as your baby's mouth and your nipples.
