Sorry but it takes forever to heal those....apply lanolin or a antibiotic cream to it...i even put a bandaid on mine lol. I didnt put anything on my nips at first but then they got infected....
They also reopen and bleed every time you nurse.....ouch

How did you not know he bit you...that hurts so bad!

I'm currently having to you Rx creams due to an open wound and infection...but aside from having to pay for an Rx I would say you can apply neoporin and Bag Balm.

Re: he bit me!!!

mama,
we didn't BF anymore by the time DS had teeth so I don't know what to do (I'd probably use my cream I always use "Bepanthene" which is a healing salve).

Re: he bit me!!!

DD did that to me a few months ago and I ended up with mastitis from the open wound.. So I had to go on antibiotics. It was a bad one with pus coming out of my breast (TMI, but it happend)

Anyway, this is what I tried:

Saline soaks-mix salt and warm water and soak your breast in it after you feed him

don't use soap or anything on it-try neosporin and lanolin

ibuprofen for the pain

ice packs on my breast-especially before nursing

go shirtless as much as possible

Nurse first on the other side and then switch b/c the suck won't be as hard once he gets started. but don't stop nursing on that side

I hope that it feels better soon!
