Made it to a year and a week of BFing! Yay!
Now on to the issue...about 6 weeks ago I saw a LC about nipple pain while BFing and she said I had two blebs and was fighting thrush. I was treated with diflucan and APNO and it was supposed to get better. THe thrush seems to be gone, but one bleb that I have will not heal. The pore is open and milk flows, but there is trapped milk fats in there and it is really causing pain. I went back again today and we are starting gen violet tonight. But we have been struggling with this now for about 2 months or more...
Things I have tried:
-Lots of nursing
-using a needle to pick it out
-hot water baths to loosen it then nurse/pick with needle
-APNO or lanolin to keep it moist
-going braless to dry it out
-both LO and I were treated for yeast
I have no place to sun my nipples, though I have considered that. Is there anything esle I can try? I have got to get this thing out! The skin around it is all red and irritated.
