Re: Did your Thrush go away on its own?

We had a nasty case of thrush...what finally worked

1.)oral nystatin for dd - if you don't treat you AND dc, it can and will come back. My ob didn't know this, FWIW.

2.) washed my nipples after each feeding with vinegar water, then applied topical nystatin.

3.) Two doses of difflucan

4.) avoided bottles and boiled pacifiers regularly.

4.) After all that and it STILL didn't go away (and deemed my ob worthless on the matter), I took acidophilus pills - 4 of them at each meal, cut waaay back on carbs and sugar (they feed the yeast), and #1, #2, and #4 listed above.

It's been gone since and hasn't come back
