I'm needing some advice/previous experience with thrush...
Over the past week my little guy has a rash on his butt - I have been assuming it was normal diaper rash. It's reddish pink, and when I put ointment on it it feels slightly raised. I thought it could be due to constant rubbing with wipes, so I've been very gentle and wiping as little as possible - and also drying him with a clean towel at every change.
But now, I have a feeling it could be thrush because it went away and came back after about two days - He doesn't seem to have any white patches in his mouth, but a little white film far back on his tongue.. it looks more like "milk tongue" but it could possibly be yeast?
And now I have been having some odd symptoms as well (I breastfeed mostly and supplement a bit at night) My nipples/areolas aren't necessarily sore, but more so irritated after breastfeeding. I'm not having any pain during the feeds, just after/in between a little bit. And occasionally, I have a radiating/sharp pain in my boobs, but like I said, it isn't constant.
Are these symptoms of thrush? I'm just confused because the symptoms are so minimal.
Also, has anyone's doctor just called in a prescription for treatment? I was just at the doctor this past week, and would hate to re-pay our co-pay if the doctor will just call it in for us.
