Re: Itchy Scratchy!
Did you happen to have a recent course of antibiotics? Maybe IV abx for GBS? That can often cause yeast overgrowth (thrush).
I am that thrush seems to be the great pretender- mama and/or baby can express a lot of different symptoms even though the underlying cause is the same. A lot of health care pros don't seem to realize this- they take a look at the baby's mouth, don't see the classic white, pearly patches, and declare that there can't possibly be thrush in either mama or baby.
