Re: I think I have thrush

Monistat is applied topically to the nipple, so you'd want the cream. Often times, for moms that have very heavy nursers, you can consider putting it on the nipple after bedtime (when they're least likely to need to nurse again for at least a little while). That said, every source I have (including the link below), says that any visible amounts of miconazole should be wiped off prior to the next feed, but the nipples do NOT need to be washed to remove any residual amounts.
