How to Treat a Yeast Infection | Breastfeeding

August 14, 2019

Yeast infections, unfortunately, are very
common in breastfeeding as well. With a yeast infection, otherwise known as thrush, you
can have either a nipple thrush or a deep breast thrush. With a nipple thrush the nipple
will sometimes look very red, very pink, almost shiny. Sometimes it can even be white. But, in all cases there is severe pain. The
typical responses of moms that you ask, without putting words into your mouth tell me what
it feels like, they will say burning, feels like daggers are behind my nipple, feels like
needles are jabbing into me. All of those are key signs that it is a thrush. And that
lasts all day long. It doesn’t matter if the baby’s on, or off, or you’re sleeping, or
you’re awake. It lasts all day long. It’s not an isolated incident. In cases like this there are a few different
options. One is if it’s a nipple thrush we need to get a prescription for Nystatin cream.
Usually, even if the baby’s showing no signs of thrush, we still have to treat both mom
and baby. So they would need an oral suspension for their mouth which the pediatrician would
recommend. It’s Nystatin oral suspension. A lot of times the mom will have it, baby
won’t. The baby might, the mom might not. If the baby does present with anything we’re
looking at white patches in their mouth. They might have an extensive diaper rash. It’s
pretty obvious. For a deep breast thrush which, again, has
become a systemic infection at that point, we really have to think about talking to your
doctor about putting you on Diflucan. That does not mean one pill, because that’s for
a vaginal yeast infection. Talk to your lactation consultant, and she will discuss with you
dosage. But, it is very important, because this is a systemic infection, to not just
have a one or three day pill. The other option, although messy, but definitely
works, is gentian violet which you can get at the health food store. It is purple. It
will stain your baby’s mouth. It will stain your clothes. It will stain your nipples.
It eventually does go away. But, it does work. It is the most natural remedy of all. So,
that is another option. In addition to the fact that during this time
anything that touched the baby’s mouth really should be sterilized or thrown away, especially
if they’re bottle nipples or pacifiers or anything like that. With your clothes an ideal
thing to do would be to put a cup of vinegar into the rinse cycle of your wash and really
kill all of the yeast. It takes a while to get rid of a yeast infection.
The best things that we can do naturally are also diet related. We have to watch the sugars
in our diet so it doesn’t feed the yeast. So, as much as it kills us to break away from
the bread and the fruit any of the sweets, during this time period, so nothing is feeding
this yeast, we might have to go on a little bit of a diet. But, eventually, when it goes
away you can have all that back.

    Hm, gentian violet being natural… That is a bit misleading. Gentian violet is a dye not a natural remedie.

    Remedy (search on google) although many people cure their women issue
    naturally with it. Thanks to my friend who told me about it. I have
    eliminated my infection problem for good with natural ways.

    Good info the greatest info that I have ever had was by using the Fergs Fungal System (just google it) – without a doubt the most useful resource i've followed.

    I believe these ideas work, but if you’re looking to get rid of your yeast infection ASAP reading Renatta Kirmzel’s website is the way to go (google it)… but for maintenance this hits the spot, thanks.

    Hey this is very interesting, thanks! If it's been 48 hours, and your symptoms, such as inflammation and that endless itchiness don't go away, you might benefit from Renatta Kirmzel's method. It may not work for everyone but google it if you're looking for a more natural approach.

    My nephew was suffering from candidiasis when he was only 9
    months. He became irritated and cried a lot. His parents were very much
    worried. One day my friend told us about Planet Ayurveda. We came here, met Dr.
    Vikram Chauhan, he carefully listened to us and presribed us some medicines. My
    nephew is now fine and free from any symptom
