What is This? OUCH!

The last few days my nipples have been sensitive and it has been uncomfortable when ds nurses (we use a nipple shield and he only nurses a few times during the day, the rest of the time he get formula). Then today it has hurt. I just got done feeding him and 10 minutes later they still hurt. It is an almost searing burning pain mostly in my nipples but goes up into my breasts as well. He nursed one side and I got through it but when he fell asleep on the other side (but was still munching) I took him off. I couldn't take it anymore! I felt horrible but luckily he went right back to sleep. What could this be? I have nursed with half the skin on my nipples missing and bloody milk but this is at least that painful and maybe even worse

I am out of town (like 2 days away) from my dr and only have coverage in my state or I would head to a dr.

Where would I be able to find it? If I don't have thrush will it be bad to use? What about ds? Could it make him sick? Any idea how long it takes to work? Thanks mama

Here's a bunch of links from KellyMom:

and specifically about Gentian Violet:

Not sure exactly where you get it, but I think I've seen it at Whole Foods type stores.

Sounds like thrush, I had the pleasure of dealing with that when my son was a baby. It hurts really badly. I hope you get better soon mama!
