Hi! I was just curious to see how many things breastmilk cures or helps cure etc. or what you have used it for...<br><br>
1. Diaper Rash<br>
2. Bug Bites (My sister got some bug bites and so I said, "well you want to try breastmilk on it? and it works!)<br>
3. Right now we're testing it on my moms sunburn to see if that works <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> We'll have the results soon I'm sure (she just put some on it)<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

ear aches<br>
clogged tear ducts<br>
eczema<br><br>
I've also heard if you are going to be on an airplane it's a good idea to dab your pinkie fingers in breast milk and then press up in your nose, to help prevent any airborne virus from settling in.

I've heard some warts will go away with breastmilk compresses.<br><br>
Pink eye also...helps clear it up pretty fast.

Really cuts? Did it help? (I just cut myself on the reef <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">)

I put breastmilk on the tattoo that I just got almost 2 weeks ago, and it never scabbed or peeled really bad like they told me it would. We also use it for any rashes, scrapes, cuts, pink eye, etc. My almost 4 yr. old dd woke up with a sore throat a few days ago and I got her to drink a little breastmilk(without knowing it) and she didn't complain about her throat anymore after that!! Also my DH has dry skin and works outside and gets these really painful cracks on the tips of all his fingers so he will soak them in a tiny bit of BM some nights and he says it soothes them a lot =)

i've squirted some in dd's nose when she was a baby with rsv and used it ti help her drain, rather than saline. i wish it would have cured/prevented the rsv though<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> we were able to keep her out of the hospital atleast!<br><br>
i find all these things very interesting!

Also pink eye,<br><br>
infected, ingrown toenail,<br><br>
skin irritations on my baby, including his face,<br><br>
up baby's nose for congestion,<br><br>
extra feedings when an older toddler starts getting a "croupy" cough, the cough never progressed and went away quickly,<br><br>
to heal myself when ds pulls me apart constantly trying to look left and right while eating!<br><br>
I'm sure there's more just can't think of them right now
