Help Burned my aerola today

I was reaching over a pot on the stove (with a sweat shirt on, I am just short) and I burned my aerola through my shirt. It blistered and some of the skin already came off. This just happened 1.5 hours ago, so I fed my baby on the other side and tried to manually express on that side (and gave her the little bit I got in a bottle as I never manually express and the burn is in the way), maybe why some skin came off. I had iced it and have applied breastmilk to it twice already. Any suggestions on what to do? Should I be concerned about infection if I let her nurse on that side?

I would keep applying breastmilk to it and call either a LC or the LLL and see if they have suggestions.

Along with that-if you have to express milk maybe apply Lansinoh first???

LC said dont worry about infection as breast milk hasanti infective properties. Was able to allow her to feed on that side but not going to pump yet. thanks for the responses.
