  • Get a second oppinion or contact la leche...if they haven't healed in 3 yrs some other measures are needed.

  • you need la leche. I had thrush in, on, my nipples. Even the midwife had no clue. My daughter had no signs of it, just me. Go to a breastfeeding speacialist.

  • When I had cracked nippes, my OB/GYN suggested that I sit in the sunlight bare chested and that the natural sunlight would heal them. It worked!
