Re: Eczema on the nips?
I had eczema on my right breast when nursing my oldest DD. It was dry and flaky - and under the flakes, it was red.
I used Ed's Herbal Salve and Polysporin - off and on. Honestly, it didn't go away until several months after I was done nursing.
A few suggestions - 1 to 10: vinegar to water solution, dab it on each breast after each feeding and let air dry. Use the thrush salve you have after the vinegar dries. I was very prone to thrush/yeast when eczema was present on my breast.
Sometimes I just let the girls hang out and dry after nursing
Don't use soap on nips when showering, if you need to - use a baby soap product
hope that helps
