Re: Nipples hurt soooo bad !!

oh sounds like thrush to me. no obvious signs on the outside, but SO PAINFUL nursing- like burning hot knives - the let-down is awful. It could also be dermatitis, i've had both and i found the difference between them was the thrush hurt the entire time ds was nursing, and seemed to come from within, wheras the dermatitis hurt for the first few minutes and then i'd get sort of numb to it - more on the outside.

My dr. recommended hydrocortisone twice a day, but that didn't help me when i had it so they upped to a steroid. but that is an over the counter option to try and see if it helps! just lightly wash off before nursing.

i'd get checked out, they can be so painful!
