Best friend has thrush

My best friend has thrush right now :(  Can she nurse while on thrush? Right now she's pumping.  I did tell her that she can use Genetian Violet and her mom is looking for it right now (they are in IL). Any other advice for those who have dealt with thrush that I can give her? 

She's having a rough go of it but I'm proud of her for sticking with it!

pumping seems to only make things worse because getting yeast off plastic is a pain in the BUTT

Tell her to use GV and nurse, she can also use apple cider vinegar washes on her nips and babies mouth, probiotics for mom and baby too

I've always heard you can nurse as long as mom and baby are being treated at the same time. Usually the gentsin violet is behind the counter (what i've always heard). So just call her local pharmacy and ask if they have any
