Where do you find Gentian Violet?

I've exhausted every pharmacy in my area and nobody seems to have it.

i found that.

it sucks that you can't find it locally. maybe you could ask your doctor if they know where to get it.

I found mine at the local Wal-Mart. I asked the pharmacist if they had any and I was told "No." I went and looked and there it was - plain as day. Click here to enlarge It's next to the neosporin and topical analgesics.

Good luck!

DH finally found some last night at an obscure pharmacy.

I knew this stuff was going to stain but I didn't realize that rewetting it would start the process all over again. My babies look like grape Koolaid is a staple of their diet. Click here to enlarge

nailfile any success with removing the stain

hello
was just wondering if you had any success with removing the stain from babies lips? i have and still is using gv but i am panicked that my babies lips are going to remain purple forever. I have used rubbing alcohol and got most of it off from around the mouth and outside cheeks but i do not want to use it on babies lips it stings. I also heard you could use vodka i have not tried it and not really wanting to.
