Re: Thrush? Please help, I'm starting to hate BF'ing!

you and baby. make sure you also don't have a blocked duct in there as I had similar symptoms just no fever or itchiness. Blocked duct I hear may look like a white part in your nipple. Good luck

((hugs)) I've battled thrush for over a year of combined time nursing my 2 dd's. I highly reccommend you read through this thread;

http://www.diaperswappers.com/forum/...=thrush+candex

It was a life saver for me and my babies. After 6 months of crying at every nursing session, this regime saved us. It's pricey, but has worked wonders for us several times now when nothing else would work.

Thrust often appears WELL before any visible signs of it. Symptoms like that indicate thrush. When it's that early, it's easy to treat with distilled white vinegar. Rinse your nipples with it (cotton ball dipped in vinegar swirled over the nipples does the trick - don't rinse it off) right before & right after you nurse. Go topless as much as you can, or a loose t-shirt with no bra. Wash all of your bras/tanks on hot with vinegar. Good luck, mama!!

If you have shooting pains in your breasts you need fluconazole (diflucan) for 2 weeks. Dosing is on the Jack Newman website. Your baby will need to be treated at the same time. I went thru this with my first and it was awful. APNO has to be compounded and is by prescription only. Gentian violet gse and apno all did nothing for me. Once myself and baby were treated with the diflucan it finally cleared up. Good luck.

I know it's difficult and frustrating, but hopefully the diflucan along with the APNO will help. GSE is said to be very helpful as well. I had mastitis too, and it was miserable. It felt like a had a horrible flu...I was weak, had a high fever, and had body aches. It came back about a month after I was treated for it the first time...same symptoms.

There is some info online that states recurring mastitis may possibly be caused by persistent thrush...I have a feeling once you beat thrush, it will improve significantly. Probiotics are a good idea as well.
