Re: Oversupply & engorgement
My experience with oversupply would suggest that once the oversupply is mostly dealt with, the soreness should be gone. I didn't have any sort of lingering pain. But I have read that moms with oversupply sometimes experience tenderness between feedings- I've seen it hypothesized that the feeling of the ducts refilling with milk is the source of that pain. But in general, my instinct is to blame pain in between feedings on thrush. What would you say to treating this as thrush, and seeing if there's improvement? If you didn't want to take an antifungal, maybe just see if reducing simple sugars and carbohydrates in your diet, and employing rigorous hygiene (e.g. Changing shirts, bras, and towels daily, washing everything on hot, sun drying if possible, etc.) would help?
