Pain in the Boob (Updated)
The fucking yeast isn’t gone.
Now, just to add to the fun, I have the beginnings of mastitis.
Antibiotics can cause an overgrowth of yeast; yeast makes your nipples burn like hell; burning, yeast-infected nipples crack and split; nipples get infected; a course of antibiotics is given to stop the infection.
Does anyone else see a real problem with this?
I am taking both the anti-fungal and the anti-biotic simultaneously and swallowing as many pro-biotics as I can. I am also trying to cut out (or at least down on) sugar, as sugar feeds the nasty little wee-yeasties.
Two years ago, I went in for my 10-week ultrasound and discovered I had a blighted ovum. Today, I am watching my son try to suck on his thumb and blogging about pains in my boobs. All things considered, life is good.
UPDATE: And now, due to the anti-biotic, the yeast is back with a vengeance, even though I am still taking the anti-fungal. Baby S and I are both now back on the topic anti-fungal. I can’t win, I swear.
