Sore on Nipple!!

I have a sore on my nipple. Not sure from what. Could have gotten chaffed by baby teeth. It hurts like heck to nurse on that side. I air out my nipple as often as I can (all night and several times per day). The secon he latches it kills me. He moves around while nursing too.

Anyone know what I can use to heal it quicker?

Re: Sore on Nipple!!

Coconut oil. Lanolin. Mother Love nipple cream. Any of those should help. Honey is a good wound dressing and promotes healing, but you'd have to clean it off before nursing if your LO is under 1.

I had no idea honey would work. My LO is 15 months.

Yup. It has antibacterial properties. I use it instead of neosporin now.

Keep an eye on it and use coconut oil for sure. This is exactly how I got mastitis last summer, it sucked.

It is not red so that is a bonus. It is the regular color of my nipple. It hurts so bad though.

Sounds like a milk blister.
