What have you heard of/tried to treat thrush? Oral nystatin worked for my LO, but the doctor gave me gentian violet, which only cured me until I stopped using it. I'm exclusively pumping at this point. Don't want to try the gentian violet again, since I just found out that it's a carcinogenic and letting it come into contact with open wounds could result in permanent tattooing (gee, no wonder I had a hard time trying to get it off of my cracked, bleeding nipple)... Around here they just prescribe either nystatin or gentian violet,though. What other options are out there?
