Thrush or Candida Albicans is the usual fungal organism as part of the cascade of problems for both the baby and mother. Usually seen as white patches in the mouth of the baby,this is a very tell tale sign of a very treatable problem. In addition, the nursing mother usually experiences itching or burning of the nipples, especially after breastfeeding. The Nipples can feel very sore and sensitive to the touch and the areolae may appear flaky, shiny and take on a very deep pink color.

The good news is there is a treatment option, well known by many midwifes, nurses, breastfeeding consultants, and doctors. Pavilion Compounding pharmacists are experts in the formulation of Jack Newman’s All Purpose Nipple Ointment or APNO.
