Any tips on dealing with pain? It hurts most about 20 mins after a feed but with two hourly feeds pain relief is only doing so much. Going to docs this evening but its agony! Im in tears feeding my lb_

It'll get better with treatment - make sure you get 7 days, not 5, and be aware that it can and often does come back. You and bubs need to be treated at the same time too

Just treating you won't help, it drives me crackers when GPs do this. Not your fault of course. You need something for bubs, it's usually nystatin. If only one of you is treated it'll just keep passing between you both. I would make another appointment and tell them you want nystatin so both of you can be treated together, otherwise you won't get rid of it.
