I've been nursing DS for 10 months now, and all of a sudden it's painful!! VERY painful!  We have only JUST gotten over multiple illness (flu, then pnuemonia, then 2 vicious stomach bugs, spaced only about 72 hours apart) so we've been on a lot of antibiotics and oral/inhaled steriods.  it's been a long 8 weeks and now i think we may have thrush.  DS has white ish patches on his tongue, but it's not covered, and as far as I can tell, there is nothing on his cheeks.  My nipples are very painful and sore, they are bright red and are cracking and flaking...  I called the ped and got nystatin called in, but i'm still not 100% sure its thrush.  anyone have any thoughts? experience?? thanks in advance!

Married to overworked  DH reading.gif since 2003, happily familybed1.gif mama to DD (01/09) and  babyboy.gif DS (4/12)

It sounds exactly like thrush to me.
