I have been bf for just about 7 months now with no problems. Until now that is. In the last 2 days my nipples seem to have become very sore and red. I was wondering if anyone has delt with thrush and if they know of something I can do today. With it being sunday I won't see a dr until tomorrow. Can I put yeast cream on my nipples? Is there anythimg I can do until I see the doc tomorrow. Thanks for any advice.

Yuck!! I have been battleing thrush off and on for the last 7 weeks with my 9week old daughter. I just went to the store today and bought some Gentian violet. It's some sort of natural stuff that gets rid of it for mommy and baby. It stains everything though. The lactation specialist said you can use yeast cream just make sure to wipe it off good before you b___stfeed. They just prescribed me a pill called Fluconazole that should get rid of it for good. I guess it works from the inside out. I have horrible burning nipples and I get sharp shooting pains in my b___bs. The lactation specialist said it is probably in my ducts as well. Good luck and I hope you get it treated soon!!!!

if you cant find anything else do a couple of saline washes. I always use old bottles with salt water and swish them on my nipples. wont get rid of the thrush but will provide some relief.
