    Question gentian violet

    I can't remember..do you use it once a day for a week? I remember how to use it just not how often and how long.

    Hi Tiffany,
    According to LLLI's Breastfeeding Answer Book:

    "Gentian Violet-over-the-counter treatment. Dip cotton swab in 0.5 percent or 1 percent solution and swab nipple/areolae once or twice a day for 3 to 7 days. Stop after 4 days if pain is gone."

    HTH!
