Re: Nipple cream
If the cracked nipple is the result of a poor latch, you can use either lanolin ointment and/or a combination of 1% hydrocortisone cream and Bacitracin antibiotic ointment (use a pea-sized amount, mixed and applied using a clean finger). If the crack is the result of an infection, you need to see your doctor or midwife.
The clear liquid you are seeing is likely to be watery milk. When milk builds up in the breast, it gets more watery and sometimes somewhat salty.
