This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Giv details of the pain.

Can you describe it?

Do you feel the pain radiating into some other part?

Is it only during nursing,or do you feel it afterwards also?

What makes the pain worse?

What makes it to subside?

You rised the same issue in another thread regarding your baby.

Since you are brest feeding, post your symptoms, and your baby's symptoms in the same thread.

Whatever medicine you take may effect your baby,and hence caution is required.

Don't make one post for each problem. Consolidate, and post all the problems of yours and your baby's in the same thread in future.

Follow Maheeru's advice, who has already prescribed for you.

you can buy calendula cream to put on nipples to help heal - make sure you are not sensitive to content of the cream (sometimes lanolin). wip off before breastfeeding.

I have had pain for the 1st 4 months of nursing and finally found something which worked. Using pure lanolin on the nipples each morning before taking a shower helps to maintain moisture in the skin. I also went to my local homeopath and was put on the following treatment: silicea 15c - one dose per wk, silicea 5c - 3 granules each morning, agaricus muscarius 4c - 3 granules to take 15mins before each feed (up to 6times per day), phytolaca 5c - 3 granules 4 times daily, staphysagria 12c - one dose per week. My pain originated in cracked nipples but also my skin is very fragile. I would advise going to see your local homeopath if you have one. Good luck!

Now I know why you are having problems.

Taking so many medicines together will defintely spoil your immunity, and will cause complications.

One medicine at a time is homeopathy.

Hi- to answer some of your q's--the pain is now just in my nipples..it used to be in my breasts as well which is why they thought I had vasospasms...it hurts while nursing more but they still hurt when not nursing..they are always red and hurt-nothing makes it just go away...they are not cracked, i never had those issues and non of the creams ever helped....I just ordered silcea 30c like was suggested since the baby was premature and will give that a try first...thanks...btw- I had the same pain with my first child and he was not premature and I had to stop nursing because the pain was so intense...

I took multiple homeopathic remedies prescribed by my homeopath AFTER I was in so much pain for months and the treatment healed it completely. I believe that some homeopaths use multiple remedies as a treatment if applicable, and others prefer to use one. Different methods for different homeopaths. What complications can my treatment cause and if so, then why would a qualified homeopath prescribe multiple remedies???????????

My skin was red and irritated from the 'friction' of my baby feeding. Agaricus speedily toughed it up and relieved the pain enormously. Hope the silicea helps! :)
 
newmommy last decade
Ive never heard of Agaricus- could you tell me about it??? Should I try tthe silcea first and then agaricus?

For nursing pain, there is no need for any medicines. Just put some cold cream en the nipples after every nursing. Before feeding the baby , take a cloth and with hot water clean your nipples.
This will help a lot

Hi dahliatop,
I breastfed my wee boy for 26 mths and to be honest my nipples were sore for eight months, my health visitor checked me and other mothers, i didn't have cracked nipples or anything i was just very sensitive, now here are some different ways to help your nipples if that is what the problem is that really does work, kammilisan cream, not sure of the spelling but there's no lanolin in it incase your allergic to that and its made from camomile and is an ointment. it really is good and does not irritate you and i actually used it on my baby's bum too. my sister used to put whiskey on her nipples and lie in the sun and it really does work. you can buy nipple sprays but i didn't find it that good were other women told me it worked for them, if i think of anything else i'll let you know but do let the air at your nipples as much as possible.
