Hi Does anyone know if you can get nipple thrush when you're not breast feeding? I've been expressing all my milk for 6 Months and my right nipple has just become sore.

Don't know for sure but I imagine there are other ways for the yeast infection to get at your nipple. They just need transport IYSWIM- usually would be baby's mouth but could happen.
What are your symptoms? What does the nipple look like & what kind of pain do you have?
