open sore. OUCH!!!

OK we just got home from a vacation. I noticed on the plane that it HURT when DS nursed on one side. I quickly inspected it and there is a sore on the edge of my nipple. A TINY one, but it hurts A LOT!! I am not exactly sure how to heal this. Ive tried to air dry and not nurse but I get VERY engorged and that makes the pain ALL the worse. Im going to go dig thru my drawer to see if I have any lanolin left. ANY suggestions mamas? THANKS!!

I used those hard plastic nipple shields from medela. They prevent anything from touching you and keep some air circulation going. Also don't put a bra over the sore after you nurse until a scab forms over the sore. It takes awhile, but really speeds up the healing.

Ugh! I just got over one that was bothering me for a week & a half.
Nurse on the not sore side first and use an antibiotic cream on the wound.

Happy healing!!

Well, I didn't nurse on that side at ALL yesterday as it brought tears to my eyes when he would latch on. NOW I am engorged. LOL. so its one pain or another for the time being. I think there is a scab now so I will try to nurse on that side once again and see how it goes. THANKS mamas!!!

When I was in the hospital, they told me if my nipples would hurt do to sores, that I should try using Tea Bags.
