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.

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

Is a blister on my nipple with pain all over my breast something serious?

Is a blister on my nipple with pain all over my breast something serious?

It might be: Have you recently delivered? Breastfeeding? Do you have a fever? Nipple discharge? This is potentially a sign of mastitis (soft tissue infection of the breast) or even breast abscess (soft tissue infection with collection of pus). See your provider as soon as you can.

Find support: Have you talked with your delivery team? Obgyns, midwives, doulas are all great sources of guidance and support. There are usually local breast-feeding groups that can be helpful with all sorts of new baby concerns. You can find friends and share both ideas and efforts. There are a few in franklin, tn. Less personal, but maybe enough - a druggist might have over-the-counter creams. Enjoy the baby! ...Read more

Hi, I woke up two days ago and I noticed a round bump/blister on the side on my nipple where my piercing is. What could it be? Infection? Herpes?

Hi, I woke up two days ago and I noticed a round bump/blister on the side on my nipple where my piercing is. What could it be? Infection? Herpes?

Pustule: This could be a bacterial skin infection (pustule) rather than a herpes infection since there is only one lesion. If other blisters develop then herpes would be more likely and your physician could confirm the diagnosis and prescribe treatment. Until then apply warm soaks, pat dry and apply antibacterial cream like Neosporin. ...Read more

Post mastitis and huge blisters, how do I heal this patch of dead skin on my nipple? Breastfeeding.

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 more
