bad latching? thrush?

my nipple hurts like hell. everytime she latches on theres a pain in it not shooting through but just like the nip is overly sore, and it hurts when i slightly touch it. she doesnt have white patches in her mouth at all. but she does eat off this boob more than the other as she prefers this one more...what could it be? that shes just latching bad? could it be thrush starting? (ive had the pain for about 2 weeks) or just because shes always on this boob?

That sounds like thrush.  Google gentian violet and maybe look through the hundreds of posts already in this group about thrush ;)  Type in thrush into the "search this group"  tab.  You'll find tonnss of info!  You'll also need to treat both of you.  Gentian violet once a day for 3 days .. paint her mouth and your nipples.  Will stain, but, will work!
