The long and short of it:
DD is 16 months old
I am 20 weeks pregnant
Milk is GONE
I have white crusties on my nipples (definitely not dried milk, not milk blisters, not dry skin) ~ I noticed this yesterday in the shower and thought, "surely I don't have thrush???".
Last night DD's bum was yeast-rashy
So, I'm pretty sure we have thrush...but it's not painful! My nips were already pretty sore, so there is a chance that I just wouldn't have noticed that they were *more* sore, or differently sore. I don't think I'd feel it in my milk ducts or during let-down because there's no milk, and no let-down :P DD does still nurse lots and lots, even with no milk, so if it's on my nips I would understand why she would have it.
My question is ~ since it's not painful to me, do I need to treat it (I'm not super excited about using Gentian Violet, because we have an LLL meeting tomorrow and I'm a leader...don't want to scare away the new moms with a purple-mouthed babe! Also, we're going out of town this weekend and I don't want the weird stares...). I do have some Nystatin cream that I can use for DD's bum from a previous yeast rash. But, if it's not going to go away, I *should* treat it, even though it's not painful, right? My first course of action would likely be APNO if I can get in to see my MW today...
FWIW, I realize that, being an LLL leader, I should probably know the answer here...but I've never dealt with a non-painful thrush case!
