Could the new freckle under my right nipple, on the areola, be a sign of cancer?

Yes: While rare, it is possible to develop skin cancer on the areola. Worrisome signs include a mole that is irregular, raised, ulcerated, or bleeding. When in doubt, it is best to seek out the opinion of a doctor. A simple biopsy can be performed in the office to determine if it is a cancer.

Freckle on Nipple: Any freckle, wart or mole that starts to change or increase in size should be examined by a dermatologist promptly. While the chances are that is nothing, if it is a melanoma, your best chance is catching it early. Don't wait. See a doctor soon.

My new baby is not gaining fast enough. Is there anything I can rub on my nipples to make him more interested in eating?

Lactation consultant: The proper latching to the breast/nipple is very improtant for breastfeeding and your comfort level also contributes to the its success. If you are too anxious/tense, you will have less milk let-down and thus more difficult for baby to feed. I would suggest seeing a lactation specialist as soon as you can to get some good/proper advice. Congrats on your new baby and good luck.

Take the new: Bra off. It may be the fabric in the new bra. It could cause chaffing. Try washing the bra before wearing again - in case chemicals in the material are causing this reaction.

This is a weird question but I'm curious- I work for new moms & notice that their nipples are large & elongated. I don't have children but mine are flat?

Pregnancy hormones: Cause significant enlargement of the breast with growth of mammary glands, the areola and nipple tissue. Much of this recedes after birth of the infant, but not to prepregnancy status. Not all women, however, have elongated nipples. Some women do have inverted nipples or are quite flat and do not change significantly with pregnancy.

Are there a safe lubricants for newly pierced nipples?

Aquaphor / Vaseline: I would recommend using topical vaseline petrolatum ointment or aquaphor healing ointment. These are very safe and will allow the piercings to heal more quickly.

No but not advised: New nipple piercings should be kept moist with antibiotic ointment or petroleum jelly for the first 6 weeks for the best healing. Although baby powder will not cause any problems, it is not recommended.

Moisturizer, hydroco: Temporary use of 1 per cent Hydrocortisone can help. Moisturizers such as cerave, cetaphil, aquaphor can be of value. Prescription products include eletone. If this is woman check laundry detergent or fabric softener as possible culprits. Hand wash bras in woolite and see if there is difference.

I've developed a freckle or mole on the side edge of my nipple. Should I be concerned?

I've developed a freckle or mole on the side edge of my nipple. Should I be concerned?

Learn your ABCD's: Probably isn't but could be a melanoma...Melanomas are screened by the abcd's: a-asymmetry; b-irregular borders; c-different colors; d-diameber >6mm (size of pencil eraser). If you notice a mole with these characteristics, get it checked out asap. If it is growing, ulcerating, bleeding, or otherwise changing, get it seen soon for evaluation and possible biopsy. Best wishes.

I have a new mole on my nipple. Is it dangerous?

Mole: Any new mole that is dark, changing color or size, has an irregular border, various colors, itches, bleeds, etc. Should be evaluated for skin cancer by a dermatologist. It could just be a normal mole or a non cancerous growth. Without close visual inspection it is difficult to determine the severity of this mole. See your dermatologist to be safe.

I cleaned new baby bottles and nipples with a rusty bottle cleaner then realized it was rusty. My two month old hasn't had shots, can she get tetanus?

I cleaned new baby bottles and nipples with a rusty bottle cleaner then realized it was rusty. My two month old hasn't had shots, can she get tetanus?

No: Rust is not the cause of tetanus. It is spores of the tetanus organsim. Unless your bottle cleaners were stored in the soil outside or on a farm outside, then the rust is simply oxidized iron and poses no risk.
