Serious nipple pain
I'm not sure if this is the proper forum for this. Anyway, for the past few days I've had nipple pain on my left breast. Some days it's not too bad, other days it hurts like a b^&*^ to nurse. I checked B's mouth for any signs of thrush a few days ago, and not one spot. I woke up this morning with pain in my breast as well as my nipple (previous to today the pain was only during nursing). I checked B's mouth again, it looks completely clear. My nipple is pretty cracked, and one little crack has been bleeding a bit off and on.
Does it sound like thrush, even though B has no symptoms? I still have some antibiotics for me and him (just a nipple ointment for me) from the last time we had this. Maybe I should just use those for a few days? I just hate to use them on B if he doesn't even have it.
