Ok, so I got thrush when dd was two weeks old, then got mastitis when she was four weeks old. I just finished antibiotics and my case of thrush came back with a vengence, I know it is because of the anti biotics. Baby and I are back on thrush meds, but I was wondering if there is any way to help relieve the pain while I wait for the thrush meds to work? My right nipple is hurting so bad and is swollen all around the teat. Pumping is definately not more comfortable for me as it causes my nipples to bleed and is much more painful. I'm so frustrated!
