I have been exclusively breastfeeding for almost seven months now, and last week I got mastitis and my son and I both got thrush. I am on Diflucan 100mg twice daily for 2 weeks and also Nystatin Cream. He is on oral Nystatin as well. I have been on it for almost 5 days now, and been following my strict diet which consist of no yeast, sugar, dairy, salt etc.
Well....I slipped last night and had some Blue Bell I had in the freezer.
When I woke up this morning, it's like its all come back.. I feel like I'm back at day one (burning and aching in my left breast).
I have a very high metabolism, and am finding it hard to keep up with the calories since my diet is going to be so limited for the next few weeks. Does anyone have any suggestions??
- I am taking acidophilous, garlic, and prenatal's everyday... does anyone recommend any others?
- What are some foods I can eat that will actually FILL me up for more than 10 mins. I am ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS hungry, even after a huge meal of steak, broccoli, potatoes, salad, and a bread. (Keep in mind I cant have SUGAR, SALT, YEAST, DAIRY)
- Is there anyway to make this infection in my breast go away quicker besides this strict diet??
