I was told when DS was very little that sun exposure helps kill thrush. My LLL leader even said to sit in front of an open window with my breasts exposed to get rid of it. LOL NOT where I live! We're in a duplex on a busy road and no windows facing away from people! LOL I'd scare them with these things!
Anyway, I've been soooo against tanning beds since DD (6) was born due to skin cancer, aging. But, I've really been working on losing weight before DS was born (lost 50 lbs, now another 20 to go! UGH!) and would really like to get some sun on my skin. Just a little! If I try real sun, I burn within 30 minutes I'm so fair complected. But if I start VERY slow in a bed, I do tend to tan a little.
Anyway, I'm trying to convince YOU ladies why it's okay for me to tan! Hahaha! But now I have (and I posted another post about this) the suspicion I may have thrush. So I'm wondering (and here's the stupid question), is tanning in a tanning bad similar to the sunlight that would kill thrush? Could this help if I expose my nipples in the tanning bed or is it different as far as what kills the fungus? Just curious, really, and maybe hoping for an excuse to get a little color on me!
