How to get rid of Ductal Thrush adult content

I have been struggling with ductal thrush for a little over a month now. I have tried everything!!! The doc gave diflucan once a day for a month and again every other day for the next month. Ive also had antibiotics, tried genetial violet and creams for the nipples. Any other tricks out there to get this horrible stuff to go away. You never care about your breast till they are in pain 24/7.

  • Was baby treated along with you? If not, you're just passing it back and forth and it won't go away.

    Back on the antibiotics and get BOTH of you treated.

  • Are you on antibiotics or an antifungal? Thrush is a fungus and antibiotics will only make it worse by killing the good flora in your body which lets the yeast grow out of control. You can check out Dr. Jack Newman's website for more ideas on how to treat it. A good idea, if you haven't tried it yet, is to adjust your diet. Limiting foods with sugar ( artificial sweeteners as well) and wheat/yeast.
