So I recently got off antibiotics for a nasty mastitis infection. Went back to my dr. who is also a IBCLC and she thinks I have some mild thrush.
I am having shooting pains in my breasts during feeding and nursing was feeling better but now my nipples just feel...irritated and almost itchy during nursing. They are super sensitive (can't even stand feeling the shower water or a towel on them). Sitting here, my boobs just feel achy/shooting pains. Does this sound like thrush?
Dr. recommended vinegar rinses after nursing for a few days and then gentian violet. Anyone have experience with these? I am so frustrated because I think DD is still having latch issues on my right side (same side DD#1 had latch issues with). Feel like I have a defective boob! Also dealing with vasospasms/purple nipples. What can I do to help with this feeling during nursing of just wanting to pop her off because it's just irritating? I feel bad thinking that way but I just am uncomfortable during nursing. Thanks in advance.
