Re: Oh Lord, it's like razor blades!!! Help!
I wondered about this too. I was told this years ago when a friend of mine had thrush. Need to reinvestigate!

So sorry you're dealing with this.
I am in the same boat still! It has been a month. If I don't nurse her for a long period it feels great but after nursing her 2 times on that side it is on fire again. It is getting old. The Nystatin obviously isn't strong enough. I am just thankful that she still is showing NO signs of thrush. Which of course makes me wonder if it is thrush. Baby shows no signs and I only have pain in 1 nipple. UGH!

Maybe i should try that next. I'm not even convinced I'm dealing with thrush in the first place. I feel your pain. Literally
What do you think you will ask for to treat? Hope for relief for all of us soon!!!
