For mastitis I always recommend hot compresses and nurse nurse nurse as much as you can, when I mention hot compresses I mean really hot, as hot as you can stand without burning yourself this melts down the block and then by nursing it then drains it, so try, if possible to get baby's chin pointing to the red inflamed area and nurse - this may involve some gymnastics but normally by lying down on the double bed with baby pointing in the correct direction normally fixes it, for the thrush have you tried apple cider vinegar, swabbing before nursing and after so some of it gets into your baby's mouth and will stop contaminating you both again, also Oregano capsules are very effective as the plant is anti-fungal; hope that you manage to find a solution and this has helped alittle.
