Hi guys, I have read thru the battling thrush thread...and it makes me wonder if I really have thrush/yeast or if my nipples are just irritated by the pump. My nipples and areolas are red where the pump sucks. They are irritated and clothing rubbing really hurts...but it sounds like yeast is way worse...I am being treated for yeast (diflucan etc.) I am washing things in hot water, taking sugar out of my diet etc. Nothing helps, but my nipples aren't cracking and bleeding either. Anyone have happy nipples with pumping? I have rosacea and super sensitive skin...could it just be that?
