ok i have been doing some reading on the forum but still have some questions.
First of all, my son is 4 months and we have had thrush for >2 months. I did oral anti-fungals twice, he has had diflucan and nystatin and we did gentian violet twice. now I'm thinking the reason the gentian violet didn't work was bc it might be ductal thrush since I definitely feel a deeper pain in my left breast. My pediatrician is having me do another round of oral anti-fungals and have him on nystatin again for longer, plus we're both on some serious probiotics including an anti-fungal strain.
I am really stressed out about it. I am already dairy-gluten-corn free and I just am overwhelmed at giving up anything else and I have heard conflicting things about anti-thrushing our house---should I boil the hell out of everything that touches breastmilk (ie half my house??) Should my husband get treated? If so, what would he take? Has anyone else had a long struggle with thrush that can give me some encouragement?
Lastly, could the thrush be related to how gassy he is? He has most of his bowel movements in the morning amid a lot of grunting and farting and does not seem to enjoy it! Is this normal or related???
