I have an 11 month old and have had nipple pain since he was 8 months old. We have tried a lot of different things to get the pain to stop. Nystatin, mupirocin, several different creams/butters. He has had teeth since he was 4 months and is not the latch. It is most painful right away more than at the end. My LO doesn't have any white in his mouth or diaper rash. But this seemed to be yeast. Most recently I was on diflucan and triple nipple cream and that combo seemed to stop the pain. My midwife had me on 400mg the first week and then tapered down and off after 4 weeks. I thought this worked as the pain was gone! Then 2 days after being off the diflucan the pain is back. My midwife's last resort is back on the diflucan again but taper off more gradually so I can prolong nursing for a little longer. I don't want to stop nursing until he is ready. But if I do stop nursing will this get rid of the infection permanently or just make me asymptomatic? And then if I were to get pregnant again will the pain come back? I have not tried genetian violet, is something I should try? Or a cleanse that would work, possibly after done breastfeeding? Oh, please help! I need some input! Suggestions!
