20ml bottle of Gentian Violet from Pakmed for topical treatment of skin ailments such as thrush


Using a cotton swab or ear bud, apply enough gentian violet to cover only the affected area.

Can be mixed with a cream if you are using it to treat thrush when breastfeeding.


If you are applying this medicine to affected areas in the mouth, avoid swallowing any of the medicine.

If you are using this medicine in a child's mouth, make sure you understand exactly how to apply it so that it is not swallowed. If you have any questions about this, check with your health care professional.

Do not apply an occlusive dressing (airtight covering, such as kitchen plastic wrap) over this medicine. It may cause irritation of the skin.
