HELP! It's 3am and I am dying!

I'm in horrible pain :-(

DD is 4 months old and I thought she was having some sort of latch issue or suddenly not getting her tongue forward enough for the last 2 or 3 days, but it seemed to only happen when she was on my left side. Now I have awoken in horrible pain, trying several times to coax her tongue forward, re-latch, etc. (we co-sleep) Finally, I switched her to my right side, and my left nipple is THROBBING and shooting pain. It seriously feels like someone is lighting it on fire and stabbing an ice pick through it. But only on the left - no the right. The tip of it is blanched white (like Raynauds blanching if you are familiar - I get that in the cold months) but the rest of the nipple is pink. Thrush is the only thing that makes sense, but why only one nipple and not both? Help me puh-leeze!

I'd not feed her on that side and go as a walk in tomorrow.it sounds like thrush and that can transfer to the other side as well as to the baby's mouth. I hope you feel better quickly.

Sounds like Thrush or Mastitis? I have the raynauds too I know what you are feeling there. You don't have a temp right?

No temp, no other signs of mastitis, baby's mouth is clear and no other signs of thrush. Feels like my nipple is oober chapped, like nursing a newborn with a razor latch. Going to pick up some APNO this afternoon. Maybe some whiskey too LOL. Grrrr....

I feel your pain. My right nipple is like this right now. It is killing me I grit my teeth each time he latches on and nurses on that side.

Argh this is me too!!! My left nipple is so sore & I have chills with flu symptoms. Starting antibiotics for mastitis to help (hopefully). Where do you all get the all purse nipple ointment?

grapeseed oil extract on your nipples. genetian violet is supposed to work as well.
