So I have posted on here a couple times thinking I had thrush after having mastitis. I am at a loss right now. I had mastitis (my milk came back MRSA positive as well) and was on a round of antibiotics for it. I went back in to my dr. and she diagnosed me with thrush. after trying thrush treatment, went back to see her because I am just not feeling well. She took another sample of my milk and it came back positive for MRSA again. I am so confused and overwhelmed.
So my questions-
What are the actual symptoms of mastitis? I don't have a fever but do feel very run-down and am having shooting pains in both breasts and irritated, reddish, burning nipples.
What are thrush symptoms?
Does anyone have any experience with MRSA and nursing? (I have struggled with repeat infections for 4 years, with no protocol or antibiotics being able to get rid of it.)
Is it possible that my milk will just always contain MRSA bacteria because I am a carrier?
I really don't want to do the recommended 6-8 additional weeks of antibiotcs. Can anyone tell me natural alternatives?
I am having such a hard time because I don't even really know what's going on as far as what I have I just know I am in pain and want to figure this out. Thanks...
