I am a momma to four kids...my youngest is just six weeks old. Every one of my children was breast fed. Believe it or not, this is the first time one of my kids has gotten thrush.
The pediatrician prescribed Nistatin for the baby and I am supposed to put an antifungal on my nipples.
I am wondering this: when I put the antifungal cream on my nipples wont it just rub off on my shirt? Do I leave it on and let it soak in and then put my shirt back down? How do I get effective treatment on my breasts when the cream rubs off so easily?
Also, I'm told to wash it off really well with soap and water so baby doesnt ingest this...I worry about that.
I would love to hear from Moms who have done this treatment...I could use some tips.
