Rash on breast during or after breast feeding?

Rash on breast during or after breast feeding?

Common problem: You may be very sensitive. I would suggest being very gentle to your skin as well as aggressive in its care. Put your milk onto your nipples to give it a coating for protection. In addition i would try a lanolin cream or ointment in between feedings, then wipe off gently before next feeding. Moisturize the surrounding skin for more soothing relief. ...Read more

Why is my nipple inverted after breast reduction?

Why is my nipple inverted after breast reduction?

Depends: If the nipple was inverted before the procedure then breast reduction alone will not correct that. If it wasn't beforehand, there may be some traction/tension on the deeper tissues that are pulling the nipple into the breast mound. If its early after surgery, swelling of the surrounding tissue can give the appearance of inversion. Go back and talk to your surgeon and let him/her evaluate you. ...Read more

A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period and a doctor's test can tell around when you should be getting your next period. Good luck! ...Read more

Age 24. Gave birth a week ago. Dark looking breasts during pregnancy. Flat nipple. Blood from both breasts in colostrum. Boil beside breast. Advice?

If someone is having problems breastfeeding it would be a good idea to talk to a lactation consultant. Also should have breasts checked by MD to see if infected or not. ...Read more
