White Head On Breastfeeding Nipple
There is a rash around my nipples that look kinda like acne... I'm breastfeeding... Should I be worried?

It might also be infection of the skin especially if it is red and painful. A visit with your doctor or a lactation consultant, usually at a Baby Cafe, if you have those in your area will clarify the noted lesion. La Leche League is also a tremendous resource. Thanks for breast feeding! ...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
