I haven't used this specific product but I felt obligated to share my store, back in my early 20s I was constantly getting vaginal yeast infections, I would treat for 10 days the standard back then, be "curred" for maybe a month and then back to the Dr.'s office (back then Monistat and Lotrimin were not OTC). I eventually developed an allergy to Monistat and was left with Lotrimin to treat. During my 4th GYN visit in 5 months, the Dr prescribed lotrimin again, after the he left the room, the nurse rolled her eyes at me, and said she would prescribe some Gentian Violet Tampons, a few minutes later she came back with a script. I picked up the tampons they were definitely dark bright purple. I used for 7 days and didn't have another yeast infection for years!! I went from 4 to 8 per year to nothing for the next 6 or more years. My recommend if you suffer from chronic vaginal infections, give it a try. Dip the tip of a tampon in the solution insert for overnight. Do this for 7 days. My thanks to that nurse long ago (and all other nurses) who finally really helped me!!

I bought this as a treatment for thrush, for which it worked perfectly. One course of GV + acidophilus tablets, and my thrush was gone as quickly as it began.

When I read the other reviews about how messy it is, I was thinking, "Oh, I'm super careful I won't have a problem." Well... I WAS super careful -- baby naked except for a diaper, towel underneath us, had my nursing pads ready, bib on the nightstand for any spills, Vaseline on my son's face so it wouldn't soak in... and it still ended up everywhere. I had to scrub my sink with bleach to get the purple out, and somehow I have bluish purple spots on the bathroom cabinet, on the sink in the other bathroom -- NOT the one I used this stuff in -- in the kitchen, on the carpet, and our even our FRONT DOOR. No idea how that happened... I guess I got it on my fingers. The bottom line is, even if you are as careful as possible, be prepared to get a little messy. It does work though!

I tried prescription and other natural treatments for thrush. Nothing worked except gentian violet (GV). It IS messy. I was really, REALLY careful, and it still got everywhere. Here are some tips for use:

Many mothers prefer doing the treatment just before bed. The baby should be undressed to his/her diaper, and the mother should be uncovered from the waist up.

Rub some coconut oil/olive oil/ointment onto the baby’s cheeks and around his/her mouth before applying GV.

Dip a clean q-tip in the GV.

Paint one nipple and areola and let dry for a few seconds.

Put the baby to the breast. In this way, both the baby's mouth and the nipple are treated.

When baby is finished on that side, touch up the GV if necessary, place a breast pad over top, and cover up that side.

Repeat for the other side.

If, at the end of the feeding, you have a baby with a purple mouth, and two purple nipples, there is nothing more to do. If only one nipple is purple, paint the other one with the ear swab and the GV. In this way, the treatment is finished in one go.

A cotton pad can then be used to wipe the excess gentian violet from baby’s face. Staining typically disappears from skin within 24 hrs.

Repeat each day for up to a week, if symptoms seem to be decreasing.

Try a black sleep/nursing bra to hide stains. After treatment, dress baby in old pajamas or play clothes that can be stained, as the GV will rub off on clothing, if they drool or suck on the sleeves/feet. For sleep, use an old sheet that can be stained, as drool will stain bedding. Staining on clothing or bedding will need to be removed by washing and will likely require bleach.

The ONLY thing that got rid of my daughter's thrush. The stain only lasts about a day which isn't so bad. Very thankful for this product.

Daughter developed bad oral thrush after a course of antibiotics, not pretty. We tried nystatin and diflucan- nothing worked. Painted her mouth with gentian violet and it was GONE the next morning. Worked 100%. VERY VERY happy. Sometimes the old remedies DO work better. Will definitely buy again and will always keep some on hand. Only downside: neon purple color. Though my daughter didn't mind her "'pretty mouth" all that much. Purple is her favorite color :)
