Does anyone know if you can use canesten when BF. I think I might have thrush ('down there' not nipples!)

Have used the tablet/cream combo before but not sure if that is ok now I'm BFing.

It is ok during pregnancy if that is of any help.

I hope you feel better soon.

Not the tablet but I was prescribed the cream. Pessaries should be fine too.

Thanks carrots and jareth - I'm off to the chemist for some cream tomorrow.

Is the tablet fluconazole? In which case it is fine - a 10 day course is prescribed for breast thrush so a one off tablet will be fine.
