I am breast feeding a 3 week old baby. Starting Friday, my nipples started burning, and my entire breast has been itching like I have poison ivy on them. Anyone experience this? What did you do to help?

See if they can give you a cream, and like I said your baby needs to be treated as well. If it doesn't help within a couple of days I would call the doctor again.

I did call the doctor, and he gave me a yeast infection pill, but it isn't helping, well it doesn't seem like it is.

Could be thrush, your best bet is to call a doctor and get it treated. Both you and baby should be treated at the same time otherwise you'll just pass it back and forth to each other.
