  • i know they make comfort gel pads that you can find at any walmart, target, CVS, walgreens, etc. you put them in your bra and its a cooling sensation.. it never happend to me, so i dont know if its "normal" you might wanna ask the doc at your next visit

  • This is normal and there is some gel stuff you can get sorry don't know the brand name but its in the baby section and in a yellow tube. Good Luck.

  • Any kind of lanolin cream will really help. You can even find nursing pads with lanolin cream on them (i think lansinoh makes them) Nursing pads in general just might help so your bra is not rubbing against them and irritating them. It is very normal, hormones do crazy things to your body :)
