DD got thrush about 2 weeks ago, when she was 2 wks old. It's getting better in her mouth, but I had no idea I'd get it on my breasts... OUCH!!!!! They're REALLY sore and it hurts VERY VERY much to nurse but I grab a receiving blanket and clamp down with my teeth so I can bear through it. I looked and there's actually a crack at the base of each nipple and it looks like they're starting to come off!!! :`( Anyway I posted about this previously and someone said it can show up in their diaper area too - I'm noticing big bumps in her diaper area... not a rash that I've seen before with her older sister... I've been slathering on the Desitin & I'm not sure it's working.
ANYWAY... I noticed about the same time her thrush started that I started to get itching "down there" and also a not-so-nice smelling discharge, something I've never had before, and then it started to get sore. I went to the doc & at the time they didn't see anything out of the ordinary - they even took a sample & looked under the microscope. But they Rx'd me a cream anyway and I've been using it but today, OMG it's so sore I can barely walk!! I took a mirror down there & it's VERY red and swollen. :( Is this also part of the thrush? Could it have spread to my girl parts too?? Geez, I never heard of Thrush before, DD#1 never had it, and wow this stuff is RELENTLESS!!
