If you want to take precautions, you could always get GSE over-the-counter and put 10 drops of it in 2 T of diluted water and then apply it to your nipples and baby's mouth with a Q-Tip... this is what took away the thrush for us. But, like I said, I don't think this is thrush. Possibly you're allergic to lanolin?? I never liked lanolin much myself.
I thought about being allergic to lanolin, but I haven't put any on in over a week (but the second round of dry skin and itching started yesterday) and I can wash Sam's longies with no issues? At this point, I'm up for trying anything!
