Yeast questions

I *think* I have a terrible yeast infection. 2 weeks ago I started noticing small cracks around my nipple and on my areolas. over that time they have become very painful, burning, bright red nipples, toe curling pain during latch on etc..

I went to my ob on Monday and she said it looked like yeast. Im on diflucan and nystatin creme (which burns terribly) and my baby is on nystatin liquid.
Now 5 days later its not any better and the cracks are horrible and bloody after feedings.

What else can I do and will gentian violet sting if it in the cracks on my nipples?

Re: Yeast questions

Google Jack Newman Candida Protocol. All purpose nipple ointment will help heal your nipples while treating the yeast. Also, many doctors don't give enough diflucan so double check against the above.

Thank you.
My ob gave me 3 weeks of diflucan.
