    Mine didn't go away until I took the oral thrush treatment. I took 3 doses, 48 hours apart, as mentioned in the fact sheet. I talked to my GP about doing this though.

    Goodluck, I know how painful it can be, I would have gone through my whole labor again rather than breastfeed when I had thrush. Have you got some pain relief on board?

    I'm not sure how effective panadol would be. It's just painful while she is attaching, its tolerable during the feed.

    The only reason daktarin gel isn't recommended for babies is because an ill informed mother gave her baby the dosage off the spoon and her baby died from choking on the thick gel. It's fine if you put some on your finger and rub it in bubs mouth. I found nilstat worked temporarily before it came back with a vengeance.
    As for you, keep applying on the nipples before and after feeds and it should clear up soon enough. Good luck.

    Hi

    i only got relief after taking diflucan tablets .... I did a lot of research and after not being able to get on top of it using nilstat on baby and daktarin on me i did a course as mentioned by pp ie 2 days apart for a week...i just bought it from the chemist myself ..the packet says dont use if bf...but apparently a doc will prescribe anti fungal meds if thrush is really bad i think, although mine just said keep using nilstat etc which was completely useless. this helped get over the worst of it, but i had chronic recurrent niplple thrush with ds and tried everything fir months to eradicate it but could never cure myself, it always came back!!! Its very frustrating and can be very painful...i just managed it in the end with regular daktarin gel after feeds and that kept it at bay mostly eventually

    oh the vasospasm was how i initially knew i had it... It was horrible....i used to lie with hot water bottle on bbs , have a shower etc...but it was incredibly uncomfortable

    I read about the diflucan, but it says don't take while bfing. She is only little so feeds irregularly so I cant take it just after it anything in case she wants more food. I guess ill keep on it and all my dr next week what to do. I see my middie on friday, she might have another idea too. I have a hot pack for the vasospasm.
