Dr. Jack Newman has good thrush protocols (google)

I had the best luck with oral and topical gse.
I am using his nipple cream and taking diflucan. The burning is not as bad, but now that he cracked it open even wider I have to pump ahhhhhhhhh

And search kellymom for saline baths to heal your cracks quicker.
I tried this and it burned the last time. Is that supposed to happen?

Red likes strawberries nipples and burning means thrush. I knew someone with it even with older baby and talked to mylc about my symptoms about possibility odd me having it. My mom had it so had wire tongue like blanket the baby has. Even off mom only one must here treat baby too. Yogurt, probiotics, rx from doctor all are things people i know.the gelatin for a very allergic baby to all sorts of food as well.

mama hugs to you.

You may need to be on the diflucan for a while, but it should kick it eventually. The salt water may burn for a second because you have an open crack but it helps to heal faster (in my case). In the meantime, sterilize all bottles, pacifiers, and pump parts. And wash your bras and towels in oxyclean hot water.

Re: Annoyed Thrush?

mama! I had thrush in the beginning both times and it is such horrible pain. Gentian violet is what finally cleared mine up, the diflucan did nothing. And neither time did my babies have thrush. Grapefruit seed extract can also help. I hope you can get it cleared up soon.

It didn't burn me and I had bloody nips.

I'd avoid the pump but that's just me. When the thrush and cracks started with DD, I pumped and we had issues. This time I just cried and nursed and things worked out better. But some people will survive with the pump

I have been fighting through the pain and cracks for a month, but they just aren't healing and pain is outrageous! I am only nursing him on one side and pumping on the other. Hopefully a couple days of doing this will help it finally heal.

Were the babies treated though? I am just worried it will keep coming back

Yeah... mine were horrid for a long time. What they had me do was football hold for deepest latch and always start on the most damaged side when he was least lazy with latch. Finally at 5 weeks he got his tongue tie cut and around 10 weeks it wasn't brutal.

But pumping really wasn't a viable option for me. Glad it's working for you.
