Any advice on how to get rid of the hole left after the milk blister skin pulls off. I have had the hole and pain associated with it for 5 weeks now.
I have tried salt water soaks, lansinoh, organic virgin coconut oil.
Are you talking about a hole (ulceration) on your nipple/breast? The only hing I've heard referred to as a milk blister is on baby's top lip...
An ulceration on your breast is NOT normal. I had one last baby during a lengthy battle with thrush - it was 1cm by 0.5cm and full-thickness. When I finally went to a derm about it, she was concerned my nipple might actually come off if I didnt stopnursing that side. She prescribed Biafine (often used for burns) and I pumped for five weeks while it healed. If you have an open sore on your breast and continue to nurse, it might not heal.
