Anyone have these problems?

I'm posting this about a friend who lives out of state, who I haven't introduced to Diaperswappers yet, but I plan to. She has been breastfeeding for 6 months and it has been very painful; her nipples are raw & red and it burns every time she nurses. She tried treatment for thrush, that didn't work, her OB told her to wean, her family doctor didn't know, her dermatologist treated her for eczema, that didn't work and her lactation consultant didn't know. She is pretty much out of options, but she is still going (6 months of this, I can't even imagine!)

Has anyone else had any of these symptoms or have any advice I can give her? Thanks!

I was going to say latch, or possibly tongue tie that's causing a bad latch. Have these been ruled out? I would contact LLL as well.

I'll tell her to do that. Thanks for the suggestion, I doubt she did that.
