My poor nipples just can't get a break. My left nipple had a blister and a crack the blister is healing up but the crack is not and both nipples are bruised. The left side has been like that for a week now and it just won't seem to heal up. Everytime I pump it opens up again and leaks out that clear puss
help

owwwww

Are you EP'ing? I have never dealt with them while pumping but I had blisters and cracks when I was BF'ing Alex and the only way I got them to heal was by using a different hold. I found that it seemed to put the pressure in a different place and allowed everything to heal.

They say that a little breastmilk and air drying is supposed to help with the healing too.

Good Luck!

yeah I am EP'ing right now. Still working on breastfeeding but it's definitely from the pump. I had no problems for weeks and than bam. It's so uncomfortable walking around with my boobs hanging out especially when DD likes to poke them and squish them lolol

that sounds so sore!
are your breast shields the correct size? the wrong size can chaf the nipple and cause cracks.
how long are you pumping for? try keep it to max 20 mins till the crack heals.
could your suction maybe be too high?
just keep an eye on it in case of infection.
a sign of thrush is cracked nipples that dont heal. if you think it might be thrush maybe use gention violet. works so quickly and gives you so much relief.
