I went to the ObGyn for a persistent nipple problem yesterday. (We've already tried Nystatin for Thrush and an antibiotic if it was bacterial and nothing changed.) The ObGyn told me to apply neosporin to my nipples and then wash them with soap and water before I nurse. This sounded strange to me. I'm going to call a dermatologist today. This will be the THIRD doctor I am visiting about this.
(My nipples look like little craters have been dug out around them. They are very red and uncomfortable. They bleed when I nurse No one has been able to diagnose the problem yet.)
