Thrush or something else?

Hey everyone! So I have a 5 month old who is ebf. This morning I woke up with a pretty itchy and red left nipple there's no other signs of thrush with me or baby. Has anyone else had this and it not turn into thrush? Any tips to get rid of itching? I'll call the Dr Monday if it doesn't go away but any advice in the meantime is greatly appreciated!

  • Try dabbing your nipples with equal parts water and apple cider vinegar after nursing and then letting them air dry. Helped for me!

  • Hello! Thrush is actually way less common than we're lead to believe. Nipples can get sore and itch for many reasons. Lanolin is my BFF.
