The problem I had with the docs prescribing the Nystatin is they put sugar in it to make it taste better forn the baby. then they say apply it to the nipples, but yeast infections (thrush) grow when introduced to sugar, thus furthering the Thrush and you might get it on the breasts.
The previous comment about staying away from nursing is not helpful AT ALL. I got thrush of the breast at least 4 times during the early months of my son nursing and I did not give up...I nursed him till he was 2 1/2.
My son never showed signs of the thrush spots in the mouth, but based on my symptoms, we knew I had it and we both needed to be treated. I did need antibiotics, but treated in between with grapfruit seed extract on my nipples....you can read about that. and when I would get the thrush again, I would do the gentian violet on my nipples to treat my son and wait and see if it worked for me or if I still needed the antibiotics. I started taking a probiotic and would even crush the capsule and coat my finger with the powder and give to my son.
I hope you do not develope it on the breast,since it was very painful for me and felt like broken glass inside my breasts!
hang in there. there are many great and natural ways to treat and prevent thrush in mother and babby
