  • Yeast infections and breastfeeding

    I understand Dr. Hale has not found evidence of nipple yeast infections and certainty intraductal infections in his studies My question is, then, what should be made of "classic" nipple thrush findings (shiny skin, itching, pain) presenting concurrently with a vaginal yeast infection (or other evidence of yeast infection elsewhere)? Also, given that oral fluconazole readily transfers into breastmilk, should topical treatments for the vaginal symptoms be preferred (and do we know anything about their systemic absorption)? Thanks.

    Thisisfudd,

    Either the topical or the oral form of fluconazole is ok for vaginal symptoms. The topical form may offer more relief from the symptoms.
