also try vinegar rinse..watered down pure white vinegar (not home brand etc) ....rinse nipples after each feed and wash clothes , towels, bras & bedding in HOT water with a canestan laundry wash and dry in full sun. i used to walk around the house topless most of the time...im sure the old codger across the road copped an eyefull
some recommend a strict diet of no soy, sugar, bread, certain fruits and vegetables worked etc but TBH when your breasfeeding such a diet is hard ..its very extensive the things on it but some ppl reckon a diet changed solved it for them...

Apparently it's unlikely its thrush if it's lasted this long. Dr said panadol, mchn said heat packs before feeds. So back to square one

Did he prescribe kenacomb? Its a triple therapy cream and can work well.
If it goes on this long it could be a staph infection

Did you end up asking about the diflucan? I was prescribed it while breastfeeding by a GP/LC who said it was safe. I also checked with a specialist pharmacist who agreed. Might be worth a try.

I took a daily dose of diflucan for 10 days in a row (on Dr advice and prescription). This was after weeks of agony and trying everything else.
It may have been a coincidence but it cleared up around a week after the diflucan treatment.
I've never had anything like it since and I've been breastfeeding for 17 months now. Those early days were terrible and I feel your pain OP. Sending you lots of hugs, hopefully you feel better soon

I did but he said it wasn't thrush as it shouldnt hurt so much. Says it might be her latch, but I know its not as it only hurts while she latches, and it hurts when ds2 latches too (im treating him for thrush as well). Mchn said it might just be busted nipples from the thrush so keep treating but ride it out until it heals, or use nipple shields.

I found voltaren tablets helped to ease my pain if panadol doesnt cut it for you. Just check with your Dr or pharmacist first

Are you eating much sugar? I had thrush that just would not go away with DD1, and it was so hard to get rid of because I was having too much sugar.
Try eating no refined sugar for a week and see if that helps.
