I have been battling thrush for almost 2 months and I have recently reqested my OB to call in the script for all purpose nipple ointment. (I have not yet gotten it.) I went to the dermatologist today for an unrelated issue and asked about the thrush & apno. She said that I should use it very sparingly and for only a few days because of the betamethasone (I also see that Dr. Jack Newman states "Apparently pharmacists have said that the steroid in the ointment will cause “thinning” of the skin. This is a concern with any steroid one puts on the skin, but in our experience this has not occurred with our ointment and many mothers have used it for months.").
I just wondered if anyone has used this with success or has had any issues? I'm nervous now that I'm using too much to treat this, but want to get over the thrush, desperately!!
