Re: Most effective treatment for thrush?
It sounds like you already have a good handle on the possible treatments. Most docs start with nystatin and graduate to diflucan if that doesn't work. Make sure both you and baby get treated, even if one of you is asymptomatic. And definitely practice rigorous hygiene: wash bras, towels, washcloths, burp cloths, reusable breast pads, etc. on hot, change them daily, and sterilize pump and bottle parts. Also, be careful with any milk you pump during this period: label it "thrush" and use it during the treatment period or save it for an emergency. You might even consider scalding it, if you intend to store it and need to use it.
