i had posted earlier about recurrent milk blebs. i looked on kellymom.com on causes.
along with the blebs i have burning pain. sometimes shooting pain that doesnt resolve after nursing or pumping. me and baby were treated a few weeks ago with oral diflucan for thrush. the bleb went away and i felt better. now i am having same symptoms as before:
-i started with a milk bleb
-then pain and burning in breast
-baby shows no signs of oral thrush per pediatrician and LC (he has no white spots on inside of cheeks but a little white on tongue, but not a thick layer). white doesnt rub off.
the LC mentioned that me, husband, and baby would need oral diflucan. i am in the process of getting us all perscriptions.
i had this same issue with my daughter when i bf her. we all got treated with oral diflucan and then i used gentian violet.
would it be safe to use gentian violet with him? he is 9 weeks old and doesnt present any symptoms. if it would be ok to try it, how do i use it?
