Yeast infections can affect the baby’s mouth and mother’s breast and can hence threaten the continuation of breastfeeding but to the extreme pain that it causes. It is a difficult condition to diagnose. The pain described by the mother is a burning, shooting type of pain in the nipples and the breast which is similar to that of Raynaud’s phenomenon and fibromyalgia and hence it may be missed by the clinician. Mother and the child should be treated at the same time, even if only one has the symptoms as they can pass the infection back and forth.
