I made the mistake of picking up my cat and got two gashes* across my left areola, one right up to the side of my nipple, from back claws. They are not deep but they did bleed. I've swabbed the area with hydrogen peroxide, which is bad for skin, I know, but I had no other disinfectant.
Right now, kiddo is on my other breast, and he's not likely to want Lefty for another hour or so, thankfully, but when he does, then what? Will lanosil (is that what it's called?) help? Do you think it's safe to nurse on that side?
What do I do??
*It was an accident; she turned in my arms and got me. Completely unintentional and not malicious.
