Re: Nipple pain coming back?

You might have a clogged duct or one of those blister things that cover up one of the duct openings - can't remember the name. I had recurring problems with this from when my son was 6wks until about 3 months. I think that I had thrush that was in the ducts after much research and consultation and it just ended up causing a myriad of problems. Here's what helped me (you could try one or more of these, but I really recommend the probiotics, lecithin, and GSE):

-hot compress before nursing
-try some of the different nipple creams recommended on
-take probiotics every day (the refridgerated kind for live active ones)
-take soy lecithin every day
-take Grapefruit Seed Extract (GSE) every day
-cut out sugars from your diet

if the pain is really bad take a little advil - i had pain so bad that I would just sit and cry and sweat for about 30 minutes to an hour after each feeding. Ugh!

Anyways, hope some ofthis helps!
