9 weeks in two days
Quoting justanothamotha:" Then I'd definitely say thrush. Dark spots are often just labeled as "fungus" but so is yeast technically. Are you nursing? If so, are your nips in good shape?"
they look normal, they don't even hurt most of the time. No cracks, no shiny bits, they're great. I'm EBF. I've never heard of thrush presenting as black/blue spots :? does that mean it's bad? It doesn't hurt him, does it? he feeds normally and doesn't seem fussy
Quoting justanothamotha:" Makes no difference & I've even heard of orange. But if it's thick & does not wipe off the tongue, ... [snip!] ... it is yeast, you should see it start to fade within 24-48 hrs max. I get the Grapefruit seed extract at the health food store."
Awesome. Should I take him to the doc to make sure, or just try treating him with that?
I'd say give Lucas paw paw a go, that stuff is great.

Okay - you made me go look it up & I think I am going to order that. I don't think I can find it local, but I will try the heath food store to check.

The stuff poors moisture into your skin, I always use It through winter because of heating being on.
If that fails, I'd go and see a dermatologist.
People think It might be trivial.. But skin cracking hurts a lot!
It does & it's embarrassing sometimes as when it burns it will make that nostril run sometimes & when ti happens it's fast, so I have to be ready. :/ I just never heard of it until this thread & now I have two people telling me it's good & then I look it up & it's very natural...so I will give it a go for sure. I also like that it's good for so many other uses. :)
Let me know how little guy does!
I'll let you all know how the lanolin does & order some of that Lucas pawpaw. Something has to work, right?

Yep! I swear it works. My son also had super chapped face from licking around his lips... Healed it in a couple hours

Hehe I might have to change my username, now that you mention it it's not very clear :P
I'll definitely let you know how it goes. I'll pop around some health food shops and have a look at the grapeseed extract :D
