Yeast infection nipples

Common Questions and Answers about Yeast infection nipples


Avatar n tn and, my mother informed me that when she used to have her period she ALWAYS had a vaginal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection</span>...could i be having the same thing but its with my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nipple</span>s? the doctor also said my ducts could have clogged but ive never breast feed!!!
2020005 tn?1464196836 I also am worried Chloe will develop thrush in her mouth or a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection</span> vaginally, I know her diaper rash is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection</span> related because it won't go away with antibiotic ointment (nystatin). Does she have to be treated with antibiotics as well?
809236 tn?1280609758 Hi all, I actually stopped pumping for my baby (had a preemie, so I could only pump) 3 months ago because I got a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection</span> on my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nipple</span>s and it was so extremely painful and so difficult to get rid of that I couldn't take it anymore. I tried EVERYTHinG to remedy it, and finally thought that killing my milk supply was the only thing that I could do. Unfortunately, however, it looks like I sacrificed my milk for nothing because I STILL can't get rid of the yeast.
Avatar f tn Sometimes you can get a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection</span> on your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nipple</span>s. they would be itchy and have a whitish look to them. Antibiotics can give you yeast infections... maybe that could be it...?
4654179 tn?1382646814 Is it possible you have thrush (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection</span>) on them? Thrush will cause white stuff to stick to a baby's mouth so I imagine it could cause your nipples to become white too.
182352 tn?1231187010 Have you thought of any kind of thrush giving you problems? in other words, you might be getting a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection</span> on the nipple from the baby's mouth? I would check with a lactation consultant to see if this is a possibility and what else she might recommend, before I'd give up on one side. Good luck!
231441 tn?1333896366 the previous dosage regime didn't work - I guess there is a faint hope that it may work if repeated - but definitely this is resistant if there is still vaginal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection</span> after 4 'one-shot' doses now. At least if there is bacterial infection as well the pap will pick it up. I have followup for the pap with my Obe next week (I will call to make sure she is in before I go).
Avatar f tn Could be thrush, a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection</span>, or a clogged duct. Try soaking face downward in the bath, and then using a Q-tip on the ends to see if any waxy substance comes off, and if nothing like that is seen, check in with your doctor.
Avatar n tn Vaginal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> infections are caused by candida albicans, which, along with a few types of bacteria, are normally present in relatively small numbers in your crotch. sometimes the yeast multiplies rapidly and takes over, causing a full-fledged yeast infection, or, in the heart-warming terminology of the medical establishment, candidiasis or monilia. this can be due to a change in the vaginal environment, injury, sexual transmission, or HIV.
Avatar n tn I got tested for Genital herpes which came out negative, but I have been looking online and alot of people say that many people get a misdiagonosis of Herpes as a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection</span>. That is when I was diagonosed with a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection</span> (Papsmear and they found alittle yeast). I've been lost ever since the Middle of November because this is when it seems to have been happening!
188576 tn?1287722662 You might have a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection</span> in your breasts. Check your baby's mouth if there is white it could be thrush and you both will have to be treated. After 24 hours of treatment my nipples stopped burning. Before I used gel soothers I put in the fridge. the cool gel helped tremendously.
152339 tn?1189759427 I read that if you suddenly develop sore nipples after weeks or months of successful feeding, it is usually thrush (a kind of yeast infection). Apparenly, according to "the Nursing Mother's Companion", by Kathleen Huggins, R.N., M.S., a book which you should all get if you don't have it, when you have symptoms like shiny, reddened, swollen, tender, and cracked nipples and it develops after months of feeding successfully it is usually thrush.
231441 tn?1333896366 So question - could all this be due to systemic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection</span>? What do I do? Fill in Dr says it can't be <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> because my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nipple</span>s are only red, not cracked and with white curd discharge (though there is curd like particles to be seen in the breast milk that I exress) and refuses to treat! I don't know when my usual Obe is back. At least she knows my history and I think she might be more able to help. I would try to see her if things get worse.
262365 tn?1268511868 I googled Mastitis as I was told by her having thrush and me breastfeeding that I for certain also had contracted <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> onto my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nipple</span>s. About two days ago it felt like a ton of bricks had fell onto me, I am having body aches, tender breast/nipples fever and chills. I phoned the dr and was told more that likely I have Mastitis, antibio was phoned in for me also. I know that you can get this infection from blocked ducts, but is it possible to contact it via thrush from my little one?
Avatar f tn I think you are likely to have irritation or eczema, not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> or fungus. the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nipple</span>s were most likely eczema too. these symptoms do not suggest warts, Hepatitis C, or lichen sclerosus. there is no reason for you and your husband to avoid sex or to postpone having a child. Your husband's rash is not related to yours. Please see a dermatologist, who is likely to help establish the diagnosis and recommend treatment. Thank you. Dr.
Avatar f tn It hasn't ever bothered me but I was reading in a pregnancy book where it said you can get a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection</span> on your breast and if you do breast feed w/ out treating the condition it can give your baby thrush... Now idk if the yellow scab things ARE yeast infections but its something to think about! I'm thinking its a little milk that dries yp but I'm going to ask the dr. I am NOT a breast feeding mother!
124958 tn?1223950159 It could be a yeast infection on your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nipple</span>s. If it was a clogged duct it would be a large hard painful lump. A <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection</span> on your nipples is painful when you nurse or pump. You can also get little bumps that look like a heat rash.
Avatar f tn As a result I've had a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection</span> since November. the itching has ceased completely, but I have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> discharge inside my vagina, and little balls of yeast on the outside of my vaginal area. I have taken diflucan pills, terconazole internally as a suppository, and clotrimazole lotion externally, but the infection persists. Any suggestions?
1332690 tn?1292527044 But I wanted to tell any ladies out there, if you have cracked sore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nipple</span>s due to bad latch or even <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection</span>, please ask your doctor to prescribe you some Newmans nipple cream (triple nipple ointment) I have only been using it a day and I can already feel that it is healing me. I tried everything possible before this and nothing worked. I highly reccomend it.
4438923 tn?1354771782 the symptoms I've encountered this far is nipple tenderness (not breast), period like cramps, bloating, tiredness like I want to sleep all the time which is impossible because I am a Jr Biology undergrad student, and sometimes I feel sick but I can never throw up. I also noticed that I got a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection</span>, I usually get a minor <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> infection before my period so it's regular, it's just abnormal to get a yeast infection and not have my cycle.
Avatar f tn A couple of days later, I had a tremendous amount of discharge that resembled a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection</span> (it was white and clumpy). I started using Terazol and put tea tree oil around the pubic area to sooth the itch. A day later, the discharge was thick and yellow (some odor) and I had very sensitive and sore inner thighs. the next day, there were traces of green in the discharge. I noticed this late Friday, when my general practitioner's office was closed (all weekend).
7677085 tn?1395377675 yeast infection (in your vag) just after giving birth is probably excruciating! And you can get them on your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nipple</span>s too, and your baby can get a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection</span> in his/her mouth. This can cause some problems with breastfeeding, especially if you've never breastfed before!
Avatar n tn For a couple of years I have had some kind of fungal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection</span> on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nipple</span>s of my breats. I went to the Doctor who said it was candida/thrush after doing a swab test and she prescribed a cream. But that does not seem to help. This problem is especially bad in my right nipple which is often inverted after a shower and I wonder if this is what is causing the yeast to promulgate, because of the warm, wet environment.
Avatar n tn Why does my vagina itch so much? I have thought before that it was a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection</span>, but it comes back repeatedly. my doctor checked me for stds a month ago and i had negative results.
1395422 tn?1308019851 If your having pain in your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>nipple</span>s like shooting pain or pins and needles it could be a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection</span> in your breasts. I've had a couple in the last 14M of breastfeeding. It's painful but with treatment clears right up Call your Dr.
1527510 tn?1392304944 At first I though maybe it's a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>yeast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'><span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>fection</span> (thrush), but it's not. It's not lumpy or anything, just lots of it so it's definitely CM. Other things to note: - had pinching/crampy pains on lower right side most of the afternoon.they're quite sore at times. -been having horrible heartburn last couple of days (probably caused by what I'm eating). -been sleeping like a rock past few nights. I'm usually a restless sleeper but I've been sleeping great. -nipples are still a little sore.
