Possible Thrush- Who to call?

edited August 2015 in Breastfeeding
I have been having shooting pains in my breast and when I look in LO's mouth there is a white film towards the back of his tongue. I am suspecting thrush (it feels different than when I have had clogged ducts in the past). My question is who do I call about diagnosing/treating this? From what I've read if it is thrush both LO and I need to be treated, so do I need to call my OB and the pediatrician?

  • Pediatrician for LO. Some pedis will write the prescription for mom. If not, call your OB. Some will call it in without seeing you.
