What does thrush look/feel like?
So, I have an issue with a bit of a sensitive nipple. It has been somewhat sore for over a month, but I don't know if I should be concerned or not. I wouldn't describe it as particularly painful, but more of like a raw, rashy feeling. It has a very small area that has had a little scab that started ages ago when my DS was having issues with latching well. Now he latches great, so I don't know why this is still a problem. It also has a few spots that are lighter pink than the rest of my nipple. DS has no signs of thrush, although I can't get as good of a look as I want to in his mouth. So, I guess my question is, does this sound like thrush or would it be way more obvious than this if it was? I know it is supposed to be really painful so I'm just not sure.
