APNO is a miracle!!

The title says it all! I picked up APNO yesterday along with a 15 day supply of Diflucan because we've been dealing with thrush for over 3 months. It's been less than 24 hours and my nipples feel soooo much better!! I can actually nurse him without holding in my screams of pain!!! It's still not perfect, but if it works this fast, I'll probably be pain free in just a few short days!! Just a little praise for this miracle ointment!!

If you were treating it as thrush in the past...it is very possible you never had thrush and actually had a bacterial infection.  APNO includes an antibiotic.

What is apno

All purpose nipple ointment. It has antibiotic, steroid and antifungal ingredients. Like a previous poster said, a lot of people get relief from "thrush" with it because they actually have a bacterial infection that is cured by the antibiotic.

Thanks. I try to stay away from antibiotics unless needed & steroids as well. So far no issues with thrush or anything.

I never thought about that! Malcolm had thrush bad. I guess that's why I assumed it was thrush on me. I'm still going to take the course of Diflucan, just in case!

If you can have your dr call in a prescription, you'll feel so much better!
