I need help!
I was diagnosed with yeast infection (vaginal yeast) and I do not know what to do with it because I’m breastfeeding my baby and it looks like most of 1 day creams that do help are either not recommended for breastfeeding mothers or have no studies on this issue.
I have tried douching with grapefruit seed extract (approximately 5 drops per 4 oz of water). Didn’t do it. I have tried gentian violet. That was a real disaster for me. I am all purple, got a lot of extra discomfort, burning and even pain, but it didn’t seem to bother the yeast in any way .
Before I got pregnant I had the same thing and none of the over the counted creams helped. The only thing that did was 1 day prescription cream called Gynazole – 1. However it seems that there are no studies this way or another if it goes into breast milk or not.
I’m being miserable. If somebody had similar experience and knows what may help please share.
