I am soooooooooo frustrated right now. My daughter is almost 6 months old and we have been battling with thrush since the beginning. We have tried everything including gentian violet, grapefruit seed extract on her tongue, pill form, liquid form, on my nipples after each session, vinegar and water after each session, sanitizing everything, and dyflucan. For about a month we were both clear (for the longest time it was just her but I was taking grapefruit extract pills and not having any symptoms). Well I ran out of pills and stopped for three days and ever since I have been in pain. She seems fine now but it is me. I stopped the grapefruit seed extract, changed my diet and have no sugar other than a couple fruits a day. No yeast at all. I just went to the doctor and got dyflucan and took it for 4 days. He said it is very strong and you shouldn't take it long because it can cause liver damage. Anyway the pain went away and then the day after I stopped my nipples are burning again I don't know what else to do. I nursed my first daughter for 19 months and did not have thrush ever. I feel so upset I just want to cry. I feel like no matter what I try I am doomed to fail and will have to give up nursing. To make matters worse she has a dairy and soy sensitivity so I am already on a special diet for that. Breastmilk is best for her. What am I going to do?
