I need help/advice/suggestions.
DS and I had thrush when he was a newborn. We treated with ointment on me and liquid in his mouth. The medication name is escaping me right now. But it's the "standard" med. So, that took care of it.
Fast forward. DS is about 28 mos old now. Sometimes, maybe once a month or something, I get this rash on my areola. In a perfect circle around my nipples, exactly where his lips are when he nurses. It's red, and looks kinda raised, but if I touch it, it doesnt feel raised. I dont think I see any yeast in his mouth. It usually happens on/after a day that he has nursed a LOT. He usually nurses frequently, but sometimes he increases and thats usually when it happens, I think. It feels very irritated, tender, sore, and isnt comfortable to nurse when it's like that. Of course, we nurse anyway.
Any help, suggestions, ideas, advice is Greatly appreciated!!
