Could you please tell me what should we do ? Any oilment or any medicine which her nipple make normal ? Please give advise ASAP
Hello and welcome,
It's possible that there is a small infection. I wouldn't put any more creams, oils, or medicine on it as these may cause further irritation, but apply hot compresses several times a day instead. This can help reduce infection. Take a clean wash cloth and soak it in very warm-hot (not so hot that it burns the skin!) clean water and apply it to the area. Do this several times a day - 5 times or more if possible.
It should start to get better in the next 2 days from the hot compresses. If it is not getting better in the next 2 days, OR if it starts to get worse before then, please see a doctor promptly.
It is hard to know the degree of problem without seeing it, but from what you are describing, this should help.
Just clean warm-hot water.
No - just clean warm water. Boil the water ahead of time if you live in an area where the water isn't safe to drink out of the tap.
Epsom (magnesium) salts are sometimes used to help draw out infections, but I wouldn't use it in this situation because I don't want to dry out her skin any further.
Olive oil, small amount ok.
Usually with nipples, it is best to just leave it alone and it will repair on it's own. A small amount of olive oil for a couple of days will be ok if the oil is clean, out of the bottle.
Has your wife ever had a baby or nursed?
and restriction or avoid any food ?
No food restrictions.
Make water very warm, just short of being so hot it burns the skin.
Since she is not nursing, there really isn't anything she needs to avoid in terms of foods.
