I've got thrush in my breast tissue following two courses of antibiotics. I was given fluconazole, with an initial loaded dose and 50mg per day for the following ten days, five of which I was on antibiotics. my GP has extended the course by 5 days and added the daktarin cream on Friday. Whilst I am better than I was (I no longer have to bite my finger whilst feeding her) it has not gone. My midwife says the latch is fine, I had pain free feeding before the antibiotics, and she is fairly certain it is thrush.
Can you tell me what you have used to cure this? We're doing the hygiene things. Does gentian violet work? Should I try the grapeseed fruit extract capsules?
Well you are doing fantastic to still be continuing as in my experience there is nothing worse than a screaming hungry baby and the anticipation of the agony you are about to experience when you let that little one near you!
I have to say i didnt use Nystatin for baby but used daktarin oral gel (bought it over the counter at pharmacy).
I dont know whether you have come across it but I had this leaflet on thrush that I took to the GP to demand treatment as they were clueless!
