This is thrush isn't it?

So we've been treating DD for thrush and yesterday I noticed that throughout the day I will get shooting pains in my breasts for no reason at all. Do you think that it's possible that I have thrush now? Do I need to go to the doctor? DD has about 1 week left on her nyastin perscription. I really don't want to get a full blown case of thrush if this is something that we can catch right away.

Re: This is thrush isn't it?

DS and I had thrush three times and it was exactly what you are describing. We used gentian violet to treat though. Not all pharmacies carry it so you may have to call around, and it's pretty messy, bright purple. I think we did three applications (with a q-tip) per day for a week. You'll want to have an old t-shirt that you can throw out when you're done, and put an old towel under baby to sleep and an old sleeper on DD. My doc said it is way more effective than nystatin as thrush is starting to resist nystatin, where gentian violet just kills it for some reason. Good luck! You can PM me if you have any questions.

Re: This is thrush isn't it?

if you have the yeast in your milk ducts you may need to think about something more than external treatment with GV. Here is some great info on treating yeast:

You might also think about cutting out simple carbs and sugars from your diet and taking a good probiotic for a while to help knock the yeast.

Well I haven't had anything pains since that day, so I guess it wasn't yeast. But I will reduce carbs and sugars just in case.
