    Erh GP wasn't much help just inspected it and said oh no real sign of infection maybe just rest it a few days. WTAF?! Yeh stop feeding on that boob because that will help!! Anyway spoke to chemist who agreed with me it sounds suspicious as it came on so suddenly and suggested Canesten cream for a few days so I will try that and hope it clears. At least no signs of mastitis. And no thrush visible in DS2s mouth either.

    I had recurring thrush over a two month period that started when bub was 12 weeks old. I had no visible signs whatsoever and neither did my DD. I tried a gel on my nipples and in bubs mouth (I think Nilstat) at the suggestion of a pharmacist. It cleared up the thrush but because I stopped using it as soon as my nipple pain stopped it pretty much came straight back. I ended up having to take a canestan oral tablet and then use the nilstat gel on my nipples and in DD's mouth for about 2 weeks after the symptoms had cleared up. The RCH has a fact sheet on thrush that I found useful.

    Thank you. My GP was useless as he couldn't see anything he didn't even consider thrush. I have some daktatin oral gel the pharmacist suggested was easier to use so will see how I go with that. Hopefully it clears. Was yours super super painful I was almost crying earlier?! Not even early days of grazed nipples hurt this much. I might try taking panadol before the next feed...

    Could it be dry skin and skin breaks? Or your cycles starting to return and ovulation?

    Nipple looks fine not dry or cracked. And it's only one nipple. It's so incredibly painful and it's more from inside the nipple rather than the skin/outside.

    No idea re cycles. It took 9 months with DS1. No obvious signs of it coming back early.

    Spoke to the LC (was actually the midwife at his birth! Small world up here 😂). She thinks most likely thrush so I am going to treat for 5 days and go see her next week if it hasn't worked. So glad I have a plan of attack.

    DS is 6 mths and I recently just had this. Toe curling pain like from the inside. I checked his latch also and it was perfect. After 2 days of almost crying with every feed, a small white dot appeared on the end of my nipple- turns out it was a blocked duct right leading up to the nipple, also called a milk blister or bleb. It was excruciating!

    I used heat compresses and rubbed it in the shower with a flannel and then an exfoliating glove (I got desperate). It took a day of all of this and then when he fed I felt the blockage sucked out. Hurt so much I almost screamed... When I took him off, most of the white pimple thing was gone with a bit left behind. Took another few days to clear up. Try googling milk blister. I didn't have any visible symptoms for a few days prior to the white dot except pain.

    Good luck!

    If its thrush, treatment should work really quickly.

    It was super painful, particularly during a feed, it felt like my nipple was in a vice like grip and being twisted. Between feeds I had a kind of stabbing pain internally.

    Hope you can get it cleared up soon (whether its "just" thrush or something that sounds even worse like that described above...ouch!!!)
