I have been experiencing a rash on my right breast for the last two weeks or so....it goes from the inside curve of my breast to the underside and the up...like a U shape almost.
At my 6week CU this week, my MW said it could/might be thrush and to apply a yeast fighting cream, like a vagisil or something, but this scares me, even washing it off before the bb eats....Im scared of her getting residue in her mouth by accident or something....
on the other side, how do I know for sure it is Thrush? There isn't any signs of the baby having symptoms: IE patches in mouth, etc...and what they say are symptoms for me don't really match either....but what else could it be?
Baby is 7 weeks, sometimes has greenish poops, but no rash on her bum, as I've read could be tell.
Can I still feed her from this side or will this harm her?
It always feels hot and is itchy, but not on my nipple, just the breast skin.
I am using grapefruit seed extract right now, as I feel safer using this than medicated cream...also, my bb like to sleep on my chest, A LOT, so I wondering if this is poss from the heat/sweat of her head being there?
Sorry...I'm just a little nervous and not sure what to do here.
