Re: Almost 10 months and having issues....help ** edit new question**
See if you can get all purpose nipple ointment (APNO). It is the best for any kind of nipple discomfort! Go to kellymom.com and look it up. You will need to call your obgyn and have them call in a prescription for it to a pharmacy where the pharmacist actually mixes, such as a pharmacy in a hospital. My nextdoor neighbor is a lactation consultant and helped me out when I was dealing with this. I used gentian violet and the APNO. The APNO works for any kind of discomfort besides thrush. When you wean and the hormones start shifting, you might experience some nipple discomfort again like PMS or early pregnancy type nipple pain and the APNO will help then too.
