    We did one treatment of gentian violet…. right in the doctors office. We swabbed his mouth down and I swabbed my nipples. Baby had a purple mouth for about a week and I had purple nipples for a few days….. but that one treatment cleared it right up. Before we went in to treat the thrush…. my nipples were extra sensitive and sore….. they were more of a bright pink and would have a stinging sensation after nursing. My baby did not develop a diaper rash though….. I think we caught the thrush in a very early state.

    Yes, his bottom and my nipples were bad, I take that back, my nipples were HORRIBLE (and they itched sooo bad). We used Nystatin cream on both; it worked like a charm.
