please !!!

So i posted in the other 0-6 mth baby forum as well under "in pain"

I m dealing with thrush, and few days ago, my symptoms got about 60 % better. Now its back again, first crazy itchiness, which wasnt there before. And now deeper pains like before as well. I guess i was not better all the way and then it flared even more...

whats candida diet? how much sugars etc should i take? i have been avoiding diet more than 60 g carbs a day, but i was starving basically, so now i broke down, and indulged in regular food stuff, (which is not even close to 60 carbs a day....dang..one slice of white bread is 22 grams alone!)

I really want to stress the importance of seeing your doctor again. Your doctor may suggest weaning but you can take his/her expert advice and ask for options. Your situation is too complicated for us to help more on this board. I think we've given you all the available information. This is a medical situation that needs a doctor's attention.

I offered a reference for you to share with your doctor to help him/her gain a better understanding of all the possibilities. I can't suggest you try antibiotics, but I can tell you that sometimes what appears to be yeast is yeast plus a bacterial infection which is why you need to see the doctor if you aren't totally responding to the yeast treatment. Only a doctor can diagnose you and treat you at this point.

We are happy to support you but please get in touch with your doctor again.

Hope you feel better soon.

Warmly,
