Humco Gentian Violet 2% Solution, 10% Alcohol, 2 oz
Gentian violet (2% solution in water) is still an excellent treatment for Candidaalbicans. Anti-infective for treating minor cuts, scrapes and fungus infections
Candida albicans is a fungus that may cause an infection of skin and/or mucous membranes (inside of mouth, for example) in both children and adults. In small children, this yeast is a frequent cause of white patches in the mouth (thrush), or diaper rash.
When the nursing mother has a Candidal infection of the nipple, she may experience severe nipple pain, as well as deep breast pain.
Please note: Gentian violet 2% in water also contains alcohol. Apparently some pharmacists are now dissolving it in glycerin, thus avoiding the use of alcohol.
