Re: Nipple trush help please!!!
Unfortunately, I tried the Candex and it didn't work for me. I was so hopeful since I know others it has worked for too. But, I'm still, with the next baby, dealing with the yeast.

I've been dealing with yeast off and on (mostly on) since my first was born 7 years and 6 kids ago. and
Here is a link to some awesome info on fighting yeast (candida): http://www.breastfeedinginc.ca/conte...agename=doc-CP
Oh, and the genetian violet didn't work for me when I tried it a while back. I've been on Diflucan for a month now and it's not clearing it up either. I just got the GSE. I'm also on it orally and using miconozol (Monstat) on my nips topically. (that has helped the most) I'm hoping for success by adding the topical GSE rinse.
