TMI...BREAST

I AM CURRENTLY 39 WEEKS PREGNANT AND HAVE BEEN LEAKING FOR THE LAST COUPLE OF MONTHS. WHEN I SPOKE TO MY DR SHE SAID IT WAS FINE TO JUST KEEP MY NIPPLES CLEAN AND DRY. WELL FOR THE LAST TWO DAYS MY LEFT NIPPLE HAS BEEN VERY SORE TO THE TOUCH AND I NOTICED THERE IS A RAW SPOT ON IT (LIKE THE SKIN HAS CRACKED) ANY ADVISE ON HOW TO DEAL WITH THIS OR WHAT I CAN USE TO HELP???

  • Apply some of the colostrum you are leaking then let them air dry. This will help kick any infection. After it dries you could apply vaseline or lanolin to it for protection.
