I have had a terrible itchy rash on my upper chest and neck for 8 days now. The nurse I saw at the Walgreens clinic diagnosed it as a heat rash. Well, it has cooled off but my rash is still bad. I would say that for the same amount of time Olive has been a picky nurser pulling off and crying alot which is not somthing she normally does. Just a little while ago when she latched on I felt a pain in my nipple. Even now after nursing I have some shooting pains in my nipple. Could it be that we have Thrush? Could the rash on my chest and neck be yeast?

 

Thanks!!

The shooting pain in the nipple definitely sounds like thrush to me. Not sure about the chest rash.
