OTC treatment for oral thrush?

My 4 year old dd has just told me that her tongue is sore, and it looks like she has thrush. I have an appointment to see the GP on Monday, but is there anything I can get from the chemist to treat it over the weekend? Can you buy Nystatin or something similar OTC?

I've got her eating live natural yoghurt, by the way ...

It's a long way to the nearest chemist and it'd be a real pain to get there and find there's nothing they can sell me.

ds2 (10 mths) has just had oral thrush & was prescribed daktarin - i dont know if you can get it over the counter tho.

Thanks. When the rain stops I shall be hauling dd out to the chemist - hopefully there will be something I can buy OTC to help her.
