Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Sores such as thrush in the nipple of the breastfeeding mother can occur purely due to abrasions during breastfeeding, for example due to being bitten by the baby. It could also, this injury occurs due to infection (for example due to fungus, bacteria, or viruses), contact dermatitis, dry skin, and so on. These wounds, if they widen in size, should be treated directly to the doctor. Because, the wound on the nipple is very susceptible to secondary infections so it will be increasingly difficult to handle. Check with yourself first to a doctor, dermatologist, or obstetrician so that your condition can be handled properly.
At home, you can do the following natural treatments:
Bath diligently and cleanly Avoid excessive rubbing of wounded nipples Clean the wound area with a clean cloth or gauze soaked with warm water, infusion water Do not exfoliate wounds that have not healed perfectly Do not hold wounds with dirty hands Always use clean bras and clothing, not too tight Improve your baby's attachment when breastfeeding Clean your baby's oral cavity regularly after every feeding, in the bath, and before going to bed. Do not carelessly give medication to the wounded nipple without doctor's advice Sweating to the baby is a natural thing that occurs as a result of his metabolism. A cold environment does not necessarily mean that your baby may not sweat. As long as the sweat production is reasonable, this does not require special handling. No need to use a fan if the air temperature is not too hot. It is feared, dust and dirt in the room can become flying and more easily inhaled into the airway with the use of these fans. The entry of dust and dirt can make it easier for babies to experience allergies, irritations, to respiratory infections which are often characterized by coughing, shortness, wheezing, runny nose, or various other complaints. Safer, if you want cooler room conditions, you can use AC. Also give your baby clothes that are soft and absorb sweat so that he feels more comfortable.
Hope this helps ...
