    I have trauma induced psorisis brought on by my sons's skin twiddling before I got him a nursing necklace and I have actually had some severe nipple flaking, splits and cuts right on my nipples very recently due to a lazy toddler latch with a mouth full of teeth. What I have found is the skin on your nipples works to IMMEDIATELY start to heal. I had a gash right where the nipple and areola meet(seemed like my nipple was actually tearing off AND bleeding) and generally the cuts even when they don't bleed seem strangely deep and raw. However , even the last one which WAS oozing and bleeding, I simply kept him off it for 24hours and it healed to the point that we could nurse again. I used neosporin on it since it was an actual open wound that I didn't want to get infected, but I left it uncovered as much as possible (all hours I was home) and just pinched and squeezed my breast every few hours to stimulate and got milk.
    If she has open wounds, she can use antibiotic ointment, and have her keep her breast out and exposed as much as possible.
    Also don't worry about blood in the milk. It won't harm the baby and it's doesn't taint the milk. She can use milk even if it has some blood in it!
