Has anyone dealt with psoriasis on their nipples while bfing? DS nurses a lot and my nipples crack, bleed, and become excruciatingly painful. I have been using prescription "all purpose nipple ointment" which contains some form of cortizone to get by, but it only works if I apply it frequently and I'm running out. He is nowhere ready to wean so I need to keep the psoriasis in check. I'd rather avoid pharmaceuticals and treat the cause, but have not found good info on how to do this.
Any thoughts would be greatfully accepted.
