Calendula Cream for thrush??

I read somewhere that this works..... is it safe to use? Would I have to wash it off before pumping? Does it really work or was I lied to?

have not heard that myself, but what I have heard work are:

gentian violet (reduce to 0.5% with water and place on nipples and in baby's mouth with q-tip - careful 'cause it stains!)

also, increase your consumption of probiotics, including yogurt and/or a supplement tablet or capsule (I personally like the brand, "garden of life")

decrease processed sugars and other simple sugars
