Quick q; does anyone know if you can have thrush (in the breast) without any signs in the baby?
I have the symptoms in one side; pain deep in the breast, stabbing pain behind the nipple, shiny patch around the nipple and pain on and after feeding. But baby has no signs so PHN says that it can't be thrush.
Really need an answer as it is getting worse all the time!
Thanks.

Yes, this happened with me. I had all the symptoms you are describing, but DS had no symptoms at all. I had to fight with the Dr to get treatment for both of us, as he was telling me that DS didn't need the drops, as he didn't have any symptoms.

Please make sure you both get treatment, or you will continue to pass the thrush backwards and forwards between you both! Hope you get sorted soon!
