At the end of February, when I was still pregnant, I broke out in a rash underneath my breasts. My doctor thought it was a fungal infection and I was prescribed and anti-fungal cream. It didn't work and several different other options were tried. After I gave birth, the rash spread to the area where my legs meet my crotch (yeah, and it itches). I went to the dermatologist, who took a biopsy. Now I've been diagnosed with a staph infection and I'm on antiobiotics.
Both my doctor, the midwives at the hospital and the dermatologist say it's fine to breastfeed my baby, but I'm really nervous about it. I keep him clothed and try to keep him from touching the rash as much as possible. The thing is, I didn't know it was staph until this past week, so I wasn't as careful about it for the first 4 weeks of his life. He hasn't shown any signs of a rash at this point.
So, what do you all think? Is this safe for him?
