My LO & I have had thrush/yeast infection in the past. Now after nursing for weeks with no pain, I have a small sore/scab on one breast which is pretty sore & both side are just a tiny bit tender after nursing, which is unusual. I'm concerned that the infection is returning. I'm wondering if there's harm in treating this as an infection if it turns out it's not (so I can start treatment right away rather than waiting until it's really painful & I'm positive it's yeast)? If I use an over-the-counter topical medicine like Monistat, how do I use it? Do I wipe it off before LO nurses? When should I be putting it on & how often? My OB/GYN is completely unhelpful & uneducated about yeast infections so she's useless & my LO's pediatrician seems to be very knowledgeable, but is afraid to give me any advice that's not directly about my LO because she can't treat me or give me medical advice because she's not my doctor. Please help!
