I am so confused and the doctor that my 3.5 month old goes to is not a pediatrician (I am trying to find him one), but a general practitioner instead. The y have a night time clinic, and so I took my DS there because I was trying to make sure he didn't have an ear infection....because it seems like he's teething. No ear infection, but the Nurse Practitioner who was there said that he had thrush. I don't seem to have anything wrong with my nipples. So how can he have it and not me? She gave me some medicine for him, but I am worried, because it's obvious he doesn't feel good. What else can I do to make sure we don't just pass it back and forth to eachother? Can someone please explain thrush to me a little better....i cant find any good links.
Just when I thought I was worried enough...10 minutes ago I went to change him and he has like 4 little red spots spread about his tummy. What?! what do I do I am so confused?! and a first time mom to top it off.
