How To Treat Breast (around The Nipple) Blisters During Pregnancy?
Good night, my name is Elisa … I want to ask, I’m currently pregnant but why do my black nipples become blisters and watery around the skin? It itches on the skin of the breasts too … I used the ointment recommended by the doctor (momilen) but it made the wound wear a bra less often .. if the wound is wet again, the shirt stuck to the breast and stuck to the wound so it hurts .. r nThis is how to fix it? so that it dries quickly? r nThank you.
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. When a woman is pregnant, the body's hormone levels change, which mainly affects her physique compared to when she is not pregnant. Among the physical changes that are influenced by pregnancy hormones are changes in breast shape, pain in the breasts, changes in the shape of the areola (the area around the nipples), nausea and vomiting, the appearance of black lines on the stomach, feeling tired quickly, and so on.
As for blisters, itching on the nipples and a watery condition in the area around the nipples, all indicate that there may be irritation of your breasts. Among the factors that increase the risk of breast irritation are:
Sensitive breast skin
Incorrect bra size
Skin fungal infection
Bacterial infection that enters through skin cracks
The ointment your doctor has given you is an ointment that works to treat irritation. However, if it causes injury to you, maybe the ingredients of the drug are not suitable for you. Our advice, visit your doctor again, and tell him that you need another medicine because yesterday's medicine actually caused injury.
Meanwhile, among what you can do is use loose clothing or other materials that make you feel more comfortable, avoid warm baths, and cover the wound with sterile gauze that you can get at the nearest pharmacy. After you have consulted your condition with your gynecologist, your doctor may replace the gauze with a new one or maybe even remove it if the wound needs to always be applied with ointment, but for the time being to avoid further infection and for your comfort, you should cover the wound. We wish you a speedy recovery and a smooth pregnancy.
So, hopefully this is useful.
