So 4 or 5 days ago I started having pain in both my nipples, it increases when I nursed. They are burning and itching like crazy. They also had what looked like very small(pinprick size) blood blisters. I did a little research and I believe I have thrush. I am trying the Gentian Violet. I started it last night and have applied it and Lansinoh before each nursing session today and have washed and reapplied afterwards. I have tried letting the "girls" breathe as mush as possibe today, but I have older DS running around and am self conscience about that. How fast is it supposed to work? The stuff that I read said I should continue treatment for at least 5 days after I am symptom free, but didn't day how long it would take for the stuff to "kick-in"
Do you think that I should be doing anything else? Do you think it could be something other than thrush?
DS is 9 months next weekend. He and I both were just on 10 day rounds of antibiotics(him strep, me ear infection/ruptured eardrum). Plus the AC in my office has been broken and I have been sweating like a dog for the last 2 weeks, which I know that yeast thrives on the sweat.
