I have got thrush on my nips and the symptoms below are pretty accurate!! I thought having thrush on the boobs would mean having some kind of wierd cottage cheese like goo but no, its itchy painful boobs, i thought it was a touch od ezcema until I saw the white stuff on my babies lips. Gutting, and no idea how we have got it! Doctor can prescribe some good oral gel for baby to clear it up and some cream for you though if you do have it! best wishes! Sarah
