    I havent had an official diagnosis but I'm pretty sure I have nipple thrush. Like pp said burning or itching when latching and for me it didn't go away. I also got burning pains in the breast after a feed.

    Check out the thread I had recently. In summary Daktarin Oral gel has been a lifesaver..

    I had nipple thrush and it was excruciating for me! Sharp shooting pain, burning during (and after) feeds and red nipples. Here is a link to the Australian Breastfeeding Association info sheet... You can also call their counsellors anytime- they're great!!!

    I hope you get it sorted soon : virtual hugs:
