HELP, is this thrush?

I have had burning/itching/craziness on and off in my right nipple since just before Valentine's Day. The white portion comes and goes, occasionally it becomes shiny and red. The itching comes and goes (sometimes goes away for several days and gets my hopes up, but when it returns, I want to rip the nipple off. It makes me want to crawl out of my skin.

I have treated with gentian violet (three different courses of 14 days or more). I have also done Nystatin for the past 15 days...still driving me crazy and I think getting worse not better.  The main reason I question if it is thrush is that my son has not had any white spots or any visible signs of it himself at any point.

Any suggesggestions would be appreciated.

Have you seen your doctor? You might need a script to aid in that. I wish you the best and sorry I'm not more helpful

It looks like thrush, but it could b an infection. I'd probably see a physician.

Actually, the WORST cures for thrush come from the doctor. PLease check out the thrush resources on kellymom.com... those are cures that WORK.


What you've been doing so far is no better than pouring gasoline on a fire. Especially the nystatin. It actually FEEDS thrush.
