The Latest on Breastfeeding and Candida
Background: There are many factors associated with nipple and breast pain in breastfeeding women. The aetiology and management of mammary candidiasis can add additional challenges for the clinician as they endeavour to provide expert care to the breastfeeding dyad. Review: The literature was reviewed to explore the diagnosis and management of candida in the breastfeeding dyad. Findings: There remains a lack of robust evidence in the literature to support accurate diagnosis of candida. Correct treatment and avoidance of over treatment is important. Conclusion: An exploration of the differential diagnosis for nipple and breast pain is indicated for all women presenting with nipple and breast pain. Culture of breastmilk is important for women suspected of mammary candidiasis, however, analysis is not without challenges.
