Hi Mommas! I hope someone can chime in here. I'm nursing my one month old and we've been battling thrush for three weeks. She has a white patch on her tongue and I have deep shooting pains, mainly in my right breast. Both of us are/were on Nystatin and I'm finishing up a three week course of 150mg of Diflucan. We're only minimally better. Latch on is still a little painful, not excruciating like before. The pain is better but it's not gone.
I just ordered Gentian Violet 1%, and Grape seed fruit extract AND the motherlove butt balm stuff for her bum. Please tell me this will kill the yeast once and for all!! I'm also on a dairy free diet and very low sugar. I'm taking all precautions but it is still lingering! I thought for sure the Diflucan would work better as it did with my middle child when we had it. Thanks in advance!
Arrrrrhhhh. Thrush is HELL. :(
