Thrush, a yeast infection caused by the fungus Candida albicans, can be prevented with Mamilla
Candida albicans is a yeast (a fungal infection) that is present in all our intestines. It affects adults, children and newborns when our resistance is lowered. Because a baby's immune system is not mature, it is most common amongst them. White spots will appear in the child's mouth over small black ulcers. This can affect the baby's ability to drink and eat.
If a mother has a yeast infection in her vagina, a baby can already become infected in the birth canal, but it can also be transmitted after birth through being handled by carers. Thrush is no reason to stop breastfeeding, and it can disappear of its own accord after a few weeks. It is only when problems are clearly long-term, such as struggling to eat or drink for an extended period or painful breasts, that it is best to treat it. Always use Mamilla.
Mamilla can stop thrush spreading between mother and child
A Candida albicans infection can be transmitted through your nipples when nursing. When this happens it is common that the mother and child continue to re-infect each other, which is why it is quite possible that they do not display the symptoms simultaneously.
The coconut oil in Mamilla nipple fissure balm and nipple fissure oil acts against Candida albicans because it is packed with caprylic acid and attacks candida at a cellular level. Both the decanoic acid and the lauric acid appear to be active in destroying the fungus. Coconut oil increases your resistance, protects your stomach and intestines and aids gut flora while fighting fungal infections.
Prescribed medication (Fluconazole, Daktarin, etc) for thrush is bad for you
If thrush arises people tend to consult a doctor, who will prescribe a fungicide for both you and your baby, including when one of you has not yet been infected. But these drugs are not very good for you.
If the thrush is in the form of a mouth infection, Daktarin gel is the most common prescription, which may only be used on children of four months or older. If you are suffering from a nipple infection then either a fungicidal cream or gel containing miconazole (Daktarin) or nystatin or an oral fungicide containing fluconazole (trade names: Diflucan, Candizole or the generic Fluconazoe) is prescribed.
These drugs can have side-effects such as allergic reactions, rashes, liver problems and more. It is apparent that antibiotics are pointless.
Mamilla applied each time you breastfeed can stop and cure thrush, inflammation and bacterial infections
When you apply Mamilla after each breastfeed you can prevent or stop thrush (Candida albicans) from spreading in a natural and healthy way by eliminating the fungus from day one. Mamilla also protects against the bacteria that can attack your areolas or result in a breast infection.
Use Mamilla preventively in order to protect your nipples and areolas from issues such as these and keep your breasts, nipples and areolas supple and healthy.
