help please: recurring thrush in babe n nursing motherHi
I have thrush on my nipples and my 5-month-old in his mouth. The left nipple is intensely itchy, the right not so much. They are also dry.
When it started about a month ago, my baby didnt have thrush yet. I treated myself with gentian violet and grapefruit seed extract. It went away but came back, and my nipples got very dry. I them tried graphites 30c. It went away the next day, but came back a day later. I resumed graphites again and also gave some to my baby. It went away after 2 days, but came back after 4 days. So should I start graphites again? or should I switch to borax, or something else?
symptoms: myself: itchy nipples, dry, peeling skin on nipples. Left side much more than right. No pain. Worse in the evening and after a long day out.
Baby: today only: white patches on inside of cheek. nowhere else. nursing as usual.
sleep pattern: sleep at 12 midnight, wake up about 8am. frequent wakings at night due to nursing baby.
sensitive to criticism, cold. a little depressed. stressed, I seem to be constantly angry.
Had two c-sections before.
My lips are also very dry and scaly. This has been going on for about 4 years.
Any help is appreciated .
