My 13-month old son and I have been struggling with thrush since he was a few weeks old, on and off. I think we were treated simultaneously only once, and it didn't work. Any other time, only he's been treated or only I've been treated (my OBGYN sucked). We are getting ready to be treated simultaneously and I'm hoping it works. I just feel very alone because it seems like no one else has experienced it for as long as we have; usually people can get rid of it within a month. I'm wondering if something else is wrong. I've been tested for diabetes before and I don't have it. I really doubt that I have hiv because i've had very few sexual partners and I didn't ever have unprotected sex with anyone but my husband, not to mention I have never had thrush until I had Leo. Has anyone else struggled with it for so long? I need some company here!!
And when I am treated, I know that I need to also sanitize everything and wash my breast pads in hot water. I'm thinking perhaps I should give up sugar as well.
