NAKing...Can itchy breasts be caused by anything other than thrush??
My DD is 2w4d old and my breasts have been itchy for a couple of days. I have no burning, no awful boob-full-of-broken-glass feelings, and only occasional pain at latching(we are still working on her latch, esp. when she is sleepy).
I had a monster bed case of thrush with my DS, now 3y9m, that lasted 4 months and caused an ugly breast injury. I am in deep fear of having thrush again.
I've been taking probiotics and cranberry caps since before her birth (a planned c/s due to previa), started with GSE & micanozole topically and GSE & black walnut tincture orally when I first noticed the itching. Am contemplating getting diflucan, mostly because its a holiday weekend, and if this gets worse, I don't want to be stuck without.
But mostly I'd love to hear that there could be another reason! We are in the midst of a dry cold snap & humidity dropped to 25%...
