I have had thrush before so when I started having nipple pain I figured that's what it was. So I've treated myself with GV for 4 days on and 3 days off, then the pain was still there (or not gone) so I treated myself for more days with GV. Finally I gave up on GV and decided i might just need Lansinoh, so I treated myself with that... STILL in pain. My nipple on one side is cracked, has now bled, is WHITE. It's only sore initially when my DD drinks, not like my first round with thrush where I had a stabbing pain through my breast into my back. After feedings its very tender. My other nipple is also sensitive, but not quite as bad.
I've treated myself now with Coconut oil, but this morning gave that up! I'm disheartened, quitting BF-ing is not an option. DD is teething (4 molars are cutting), so figuring it might have something to do with that? Any advice would be highly appreciated.
I don't know if I have thrush or a milk blister, if I should just call it a day and go to the doctor (not looking forward to a man looking at my boobs! LOL) But I need to get a handle on this as it has been more than a month and I'm so over it!
I just want my nipples back, PLEASE help!
