i was prescribed a one time use yeast medicine by my doctor called fluconazole. i was given this medicine because i requested an oral medicine instead of the cream i had been given. this is for yeast in my nipples. but the info ive found about the medicine says its not recommended for breastfeeding. im confused about what to do -if i should take the medicine or not. does anyone know if there is a real risk to the baby if i use this medicine?
i also have one nipple that is split in 2 places. it is extremely painful and it wont heal. does anyone have any advice on how to help this nipple. and how to deal with feeding off of it.
