Your opinions would help!<br><br>
(also posting this in pregnancy forum)<br><br>
I'll try to be brief:<br><br>
DD only nurses from one breast (right).<br><br>
Yeast infection on nipple flared up BIG TIME w/ pregnancy (i'm 3.5 mos). One one the MOST PAINFUL things I've ever experienced.<br><br>
Started nursing occasionally on dry left side (with much encouragement.)<br><br>
Yeast on right seems to be subsiding, areola and surrounding skin is healing.<br><br>
BUT her latch is still SO PAINFUL on the yeasty right side and I'm starting to wonder if it could be due to pregnancy. ??<br><br>
The thing that confuses me is that she is occasionally nursing on the left, dry, non-yeast side and there is no pain. Would that be because there's no yeast, or no milk?<br><br>
Imput will help be figure out how to best continue my treatment.<br><br>
TIA!

If the other side doesn't hurt, it's gotta be the yeast. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"><br><br>
Have you seen the Jack Newman <a href="http://www.drjacknewman.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=61&Itemid=86" target="_blank">treatment</a> page? It was posted to me in my <a href="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/showthread.php?p=9834645#post9834645" target="_blank">cracked nipple</a> thread. You can probably find some helpful info on treating there.<br><br>
I hope it gets better! I"ve had some breast and nipple pain issues lately and can totally relate.
