My little one is 4 months and exclusively breastfed. Starting yesterday I have been feeling a burning sensation and shooting pain in my left nipple. It doesn't happen on my right. He also seems to have lots more gas than usual and has been pretty fussy - could correspond with teething, but isn't this a sign of thrush?
My pediatrician said he didn't think it was thrush in my son at least- how to I treat it myself if it is what I have? How fast will it get better? Don't both the mother and child have to be treated, to avoid passing it back and forth? Is it something else?
