Re: Shooting pains. Thrush??
It is also important to include your child's pediatrician, since your lo probably has it as well (even if s/he is not showing any symptoms). If you don't treat both of you at the same time, you will just pass it back and forth and reinfect each other.
It helped me to wash all my clothes in hot water with a cup of vinegar added and also rinsing my nipples after nursing with half water, half vinegar. I used gentian violet to treat both of us and it worked really well for me.
