hi. my 8 1/2 mos old dd bit me about a week ago ... she has a lot of teeth! she hasn't done it since however i haven't healed yet and it's just getting worse. it's very red sollen and open ... yuck and ouch! i've tried lanolin, calendula salve, air drying and breastmilk but nothing is helping it heal. my babe is breastfeeding quite often so it's getting agitated all of the time!

any healing ideas?? i've talked to a lactation peep and she suggested calling my obgyn but thought i'd ask you all first because i'd like to stay on the natural path but i also don't want an infection!
thank you!!

Hi,

Ivan bites as well. Not so much now. I heard that wet tea bags were good for helping with the irritation of constant nursing. Just apply to area. If you have any of the nipple cups, maybe your could put the tea bag in there to help secure it under your bra so you could do other stuff while getting the soothing benefits.
