I've been having EXCRUCIATING burning/stinging pain after I get done feeding LO for weeks now! I was prescribed diflucan by my old ob right after we moved.
I went to see my new ob, and I TOLD him that I've been on diflucan for OVER 2 weeks and the pain has not subsided (under the impression that it's thrush), he really didn't seem concerned and prescribed me MORE diflucan! Something has got to give, i've been on diflucan for almost 3 weeks and the pain has not been improving. One nurse told me it was my latch, but my latch has since been corrected, also LO has nystatin (the bottle says 4x a day but we've only been giving it to him once a day). This new ob didn't even really listen to me when I asked if there was anything else, he just told me that if this prescription of diflucan doesn't work to go see a lac. consultant somewhere.... really!??! I also asked him about APNO and he said "yeah you can use that" ... um, i was asking for a prescription, but then he changed the subj. and by that point i just really had enough.
What can I do about this thrush?!? It's been over 2 weeks with no help from diflucan... and it burns and stings so bad after feeding that i lose sleep over it. LO is 6 weeks old and I've been bf him since birth but i'm in so much pain and misery and no one seems to want to help me!
