Use of Intrapartum Antibiotics and the Incidence of Postnatal Maternal and Neonatal Yeast Infections
TLDR
The higher rates of thrush and breast candidiasis in antibiotic-exposed mother–infant pairs merits further study, and mothers who were exposed to intrapartum antibiotics were significantly more likely to develop Breast candidiasis. Expand
Caring for new mothers: diagnosis, management and treatment of nipple dermatitis in breastfeeding mothers
TLDR
A detailed discussion on the clinical features and management of various causes of nipple dermatitis during lactation, including problems with infant latch‐on, congenital oral anomalies, plugged lactiferous ducts, atopic dermatitis, irritant contact dermatitis and Raynaud’s phenomenon of the nipple are provided. Expand
Fluconazole for Postpartum Candidal Mastitis and Infant Thrush

Dermatoses of the breast in lactation
TLDR
Dermatoses of the breast during lactation can be difficult to diagnose because of their overlapping clinical appearances, so it is relevant for practicing dermatologists to be aware of certain facts in a patient's history, specific physical exam findings, and the most appropriate laboratory tests used to diagnose these conditions. Expand
Mammary candidiasis: A medical condition without scientific evidence?
TLDR
Results showed that the role played by yeasts in breast and nipple pain is, if any, marginal and strongly support that coagulase-negative staphylococci and streptococci (mainly from the mitis and salivarius groups) are the agents responsible for such cases. Expand
Deep breast pain during lactation: a case-control study in Sweden investigating the role of Candida albicans
TLDR
Neither clinical symptoms nor microbial cultivation appear to be reliable means for making a diagnosis of Candida albicans infection of the breast. Expand
Management of Common Lactation and Breastfeeding Problems
TLDR
Following childbirth, mothers and neonates should remain together, skin to skin, to allow the process of breastfeeding to begin, and lactation can be successfully induced in nonpregnant women using combinations of medications and breast stimulation. Expand
Raynaud’s Phenomenon, Candidiasis, and Nipple Pain Strategies for Differential Diagnosis and Care
TLDR
A case study of RP-n mistaken for Candidiasis, where pain from primary Raynaud’s Phenomenon of the Nipple (RP-n) imitates Canddiasis, misleading providers who prescribe antifungal medications. Expand
