My DD is 5 weeks old and I've had nipple pain from the get-go. First it was latching problems that caused cracks (I would sob from the pain). Now, it's burning pain and blanching even when I'm not feeding her. Chloe does have a tendency to push and pull and clamp and fuss, which doesn't help! Anyway, my lactation consultant says it's thrush but the pediatrician and my OB have examined us and both say No. At first I didn't believe them because in all my research, I've read that burning nipples ARE a sign of thrush. But as 2 1/2 weeks have passed and the baby not showing signs of thrush...and the fact I'm still in pain despite 10 days of nystatin cream...I'm beginning to think it's something else and NOT thrush. At this point, I don't know where to turn for help!
