Steps for Sore Nipple Relief
These steps can help alleviate sore nipple issues:
- Use APNO nipple cream from AIP in combination with a moisturizing cream
- Take a break from the activity that causes irritation
- Wear softer materials
- Wear a supportive bra
- Use colloidal oatmeal for reducing inflammation and dryness
Sore nipples can be caused by a number of reasons. This makes it important to treat the problem at root level. The situation is made worse by low quality moisturizers and nipple creams.
You should make sure to choose an all-purpose nipple cream, such as APNO from AIP. This contains only high-quality ingredients. You may require a prescription medication if your sore nipples are because of a medical issue.
Pregnancy and Dry Nipples
Pregnancy can cause your nipples to become sore, tender, and dry. Hormones play a major role in causing the nipples to become irritated or dry during pregnancy. A woman’s breasts may undergo several changes when progesterone and estrogen levels change. This includes:
Breastfeeding and Dry Nipples
Breastfeeding can cause chapped, dry, and sore nipples. Approximately, 80 – 90% women experience fissures and nipple pain when they start breastfeeding. Infants tend to suckle aggressively. Your nipples can be left feeling sore, dry, and chafed when you start feeding your baby frequently.
Additionally, breastfeeding can also leave you more susceptible to thrush which can pass back and forth between your nipples and the baby’s mouth.
Prevention is the Best Cure
These are a few steps that you can consider taking to prevent the common causes of dry nipples:
- Try wearing shirts that do not rub against your chest or nipples while exercising or carrying out brisk activities. You should consider changing your bra to a better material that doesn’t cause as much friction. Friction leads to irritated and dry nipples.
- You can protect nipple chafing by placing adhesive bandages over the nipples before running or working out.
- Nipple irritation becomes worse if you stimulate the nipples when they are feeling chafed or dry.
- Avoiding allergens is the best way for preventing nipple dryness in people that are allergic to certain substances and materials. Wash away the allergen quickly if your nipples come in contact with the substance.
- Thrush can be prevented by keeping the nipples dry, cool, and clean.
Several conditions affecting the breasts can be prevented by leading a healthy lifestyle. This includes breast cancer. You should make efforts to eat a healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables.
