  • It can make your nipples kind of red and itchy that is all I remember.

  • it's actually a yeast infection of the nipples caused by your infant having thrush.. http://www.webmd.com/oral-health/tc/thrush-symptoms

  • It can look different, but I didn't notice anything obvious when we had thrush. They may have been a bit red, but nothing really obvious.
