You may have to see your GP first.

Saying that, you could try the chemist first & see if they can prescribe you something over the counter.

when my dd had thrush in her mouth it was very thick almost yellowy

when dd and I had thrush her tongue was white but it was lumpy like cottage cheese. I did take her to the GP and they gave her some drops. The GP suggested I get some daktarin oral gel and put it on my nipples after each feed to stop reinfection. It really did work quite quickly BUT then I think we had a good dose as she was unsettled and it was tow curling agony to feed her.

hope that helps.
