I went to the doc a week ago with a nipple that looked cracked, and areola that was red and shinny. The doc there was not sure what it was, but got me some cream for thrush. I did have a yeast infection a few weeks ago, if that counts for anything. Now it looks less red all over, but there still is a "cut" at the base of the nipple. It is still painful to nurse from this side, it also hurts when anything rubs on it. I am almost out of cream and I don't really want to go back (no insurance, and right after holidays). Do you think it could be something else?
