    Default Breastmilk is all we need!!

    I wanted to share this but not sure where it fits. My ds had real dry skin on his cheek. I tried ointments and lotions with no success. So...I put some breastmilk on it twice and.....smooth healthy skin again. Anyone have any similar stories??

    yep, I have had a cut in my nose for a month that just WOULD NOT HEAL.

    I tried zinc cream, polysporin, alchohol, peroxide...

    Finally two nights I got desperate and soaked a tissue in BM. Its almost healed now.

    Whenever my son scratches his face (and he does it a lot for some reason), I put some BM on it and it heals pretty quick without leaving scars.

    My dr. told us to use it on cuts or scratches. I guess we could use it on ourselves too!

    My 3 year old has eczema and I pump milk to rub over her dry patches. Works better than any cream we've ever used on her INCLUDING precrips. When my daughter had a severe allergic reaction recently and was super itchy she asked me to "put mommy milk on it like you do for sissy" Thinking it wouldn't help but would give her some peace of mind I did it and it DID help her with her itchyness. Of course she still had to go on antibiotics to control the allergic reaction but overall it did still help her skin.
