I have been experiencing nipple breast pain for weeks now. In the beginning it was definately due to poor latch, but at some point it progressed to pain/burning between feedings. I keep trying to wait it out hoping that it will just go away.
I didn't think it could be thrush at first because some days the pain is virtually gone, though others it's unbearable. That and it's much much worse in one breast. A lactation consultant did have me start on Newman's ointment. I've used it for one week, and haven't noticed much change.
Anyone else have symtoms vary on a daily basis with thrush, and notice it being worse in one breast? I need to do something different soon though, because I'm starting to have pain deep in my "bad breast" like it's moved from the nipple
What were your symptoms, and what treatment worked for you?
