    Wow, you have really been going through the ringer! You are doing a wonderful job sticking with BF. I agree with PP's that while you have thrush use just the nystatin cream and not the Lansinoh. Also, while breastmilk can be great to put on your nipples to help healing, it may also not be a good idea with thrush. The thrush feeds on the milk. I'd hold off on that remedy until the thrush is gone. Hopefully the diflucan will help. I really hope you start to feel better soon!

    I just had another thought. Have you heard of Dr. Jack Newman's All Purpose Nipple Ointment? You can have your doc prescribe and the pharmacy can mix it. It has an antifungal as well as I believe a steroid that will help with healing. You could use that instead of the nystatin and it may help with healing the cracks as well. Here is a link about it:
