Rash but not sure if its thrush

My overactive/very leaky side now has a red, not really raised rash surrounding my nipple. I don't think this is thrush. Its not itchy or flaky. Could it be irritation due to wearing soggy breast pads too long? I know its a major no no but its hard to notice when its so hot and humid. Has anyone else had anything like this and if so what did you do for it? Thanks!

Not sure, but it could be the beginnings of thrush. Sounds like airing out and trying to keep it as dry as you can will be the solution either way. You might want to watch your sugar intake and get more yogurt or probiotics. Those measures couldn't hurt. If it doesn't clear up see your doc in case it is some other kind of infection.

I aired it out and slathered on flax oil and it cleared up! I've also been more careful about changing the boob pads. I think I might try milkies. Thanks!

Glad you're better!
I just heard about the milkies in another thread. Cool idea to be able to save leaked milk!
