I have had a yeast infection on my nipples for three months now. I have tried Gentian Violet (twice), Nystatin, Lotrimin, Monistat, two different steroids, Diflucan 100 mg for 2 weeks, and am now trying Diflucan 200 mg for 2 weeks after a 400 mg. loading dose. I am on an antiyeast diet. I'm taking acidopholis/bifidus (sp). I'm wearing cotton bras and washing them in hot water with vinegar every day. I'm going braless as much as possible. I have one week left of the Diflucan and so far the pain has only become worse. I have several deep cracks in one of my nipples that is excruciatingly painful to nurse from. Any suggestions or advice for me?
