thrush/upper respiratory infection

Can babies get thrush from dirty nipples? Also my niece has thrush and a upper respiratory infection. Is there a connection between the two infections. She is 7 months old and has a problem with ear infections and has had alot of medication. Do I or my daughter have to be concerned about getting thrush from her? Thank you Linda

I think of Thrush as being a Vaginal candidiasis, so I looked up Thrush in the On-Line-Medical Dictionary (link in the Glossary)

Here is what I found:

-----
Thrush -> Candidiasis

It is usually a superficial infection of the moist cutaneous areas of the body and is generally caused by Candida albicans, it most commonly involves the skin (dermatocandidiasis), oral mucous membranes (oral candidiasis), respiratory tract (bronchocandidiasis) and vagina (vaginal candidiasis or thrush). Rarely there is a systemic infection or endocarditis.

Oral candidiasis: describes a fungal (yeast) infection of the oral cavity due to Candida. It is common in infants, diabetics or those on chemotherapy and is well recognised in patients with HIV infection and AIDS.

Oesophageal candidiasis: Infection of the oesophagus by the yeast-like fungus Candidal albicans. Usually occurs in the immunocompromised individual (AIDS or following chemotherapy). Oral candidiasis is a predisposing factor but oesophageal involvement can occur without evidence of infection in the oral cavity. Symptoms include difficulty swallowing, pain on swallowing and oral lesions. Diagnosis is made using endoscopy.
-----

The Candida Albicans fungus is just about everywhere, so you could "catch" some from about any source. In fact, I understand that we all have some somewhere.

But whether it becomes a problem for you depends very little on the source of the Candida and mostly on the current the state of your body, your state of wellness (or not!) If the conditions in your body are good for the Candida, then it will thrive there. If not, then not.

Hope this helps.

Hi, Linda.

Listen to RocketHealer Jim.

Thrush in the mouth of a baby is fairly common and easily treated by painting the mouth with Gentian Violet (you will get purple nipples) once.

However with both these conditions AND the history of recurrent ear infections and conventional knee jerk antibiotice (although all research says they do no good for this condition) tells me that this child had LGS, and C-RS. You can get this child's health back by learning about this. See the archives for these diagnosis and see the glossary for any unfamiliar terms.

THEN, if you still have questions, write again.

Thanks for the info... especially about Candidas and diabetics.

Many women that have a condition called Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) wind up having diabetes by age 40 - 50. Is it possible that they also have Candidas? Which comes first the PCOS or the candidas or the diabetes?
HMMM........

Hi, Sally.

The stress-effect storage comes first, then the endocrinopathy [PCOS and diabetes are glandular in character and are directly influenced by the hypothalamus], the LGS comes from the bracing which comes directly from the hypothalamic function and the Candida comes after the LGS. Once the candida arrives, if the person still doesn't have PCOS, it makes them a LOT more susceptible to it.

SO, you see that this is a holographic, dynamic homeostasis that is all in together. Which comes first in any individual is more a function of their genetics than it is of the actual cause. However, that means that the approach to resolution is much the same for every person.
