    Default Dr. Newmans' APNO

    I want to buy some of Dr Newmans' APNO (all purpouse nipple ointment) but I can't find it on any websites that ship outside of the USA. Can anyone help? I live in the UK so any websites that sell it and ship here would be great. Thx

    with PP. It sort of looks like something a compounding pharmacist would need to fill. If you can find one, this link gives instructions and an example of how your doctor might write the prescription:

    If you can find it available for sale in the US, I'd be happy to ship it to you. Just PM me if you have any luck.

    It is prescription only because of the steroids in it. And mixing it up without those takes away the pain-reducing part of it.

    Until I could get a prescription I mixed my own. I used equal parts Bacitracin, 1% hydrocortisone and Lotrimin AF. It seemed to be helping.
