Should I take my baby to the Er for thrush if her doctor is closed?

Her doctor is not open on the weekend, is it ok to wait until Monday morning?  It appears to be thrush on her tongue and inner lip.

No...this is NOT an emergency. Thrush will not cause any harm to your baby, so you can safely wait until Monday to have a prescription called in. Many pediatricians do not even choose to treat it.
