Hey ladies! I hope someone can help me because I'm suffering so much! DD2 has been EBF for 12 weeks now and aside from the painful first 2 weeks, it's been quite easy. But now, since a few days, today being the worst, I have this excruciating pain in one nipple. As soon as she latches on, I want to scream in pain. It starts in the nipple and then spreads to the inner breast tissue. I don't have any lumps and the milk seems drained after a feeding. I went to a GP today and she suspected it was thrush but DD2 lacks white spots in her mouth and I only have one painful nipple/breast. I thought thrush affects both breasts?! I started the treatment with an antifungal cream but am wondering that if it really was thrush, how is a topical ointment going to clear the pain inside?! Any ideas?
