Aside from lanolin, how can I treat a small nipple blister that I got from breastfeeding? Is dabbing alcohol safe? It's not a milk bleb.
No lanolin: I advised my nursing moms with sore nipples to clean gently with diaper wipe or moist washcloth and air dry after sessions. Then express small amount of your breast milk and massage in. Breast milk has lots of healing properties. Lanolin is an old fashioned advise and can cause the nipples to remain soft and easier to tear during nursing. ...Read more

Post mastitis and huge blisters, how do I heal this patch of dead skin on my nipple? Breastfeeding.
Needs evaluation: "blisters" and "dead skin" on a breast after mastitis sounds like a problem. A primary care doctor can evaluate it to see if further treatment is needed, or perhaps the previously inflamed skin is now drying up and will eventually peel away, leaving new skin. The breast can be examined now and then again later, to be sure the breast returns to normal, and there is not another medical problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
