Re: Recovered from mastitis & now both nipples are cracked..
Were your nipples sore and cracked before the bout with mastitis? The reason I ask is that if you weren't sore or cracked prior to having mastitis, and if you treated the mastitis with antibiotics, thrush could explain why you're sore and cracked now. Thrush often follows a course of antibiotics because the drugs kill off your good skin bacteria and allow the yeast that naturally lives on your skin to grow out of control.
If this is thrush, the shields aren't going to help much.
