Woo Hoo - staph infection :-)

I've never been so delighted to get a diagnosis. An actual diagnosis, and a nice rx to fix it. I started out with just one crack on my nipple three weeks ago, and it's been awful. And every time I talked to a doctor, nurse, ob/gyn, any sort of actual medical professional, they just said to suck it up -it's part of breastfeeding. But I KNEW it wasn't. Nursing isn't supposed to hurt. And by the time I went into the urgent care clinic last night, I had "multiple fissures" and a staph infection.

Oh no Melissa! But at least now you'll hopefully heal up and feel better.
