Balsam of Peru on Fissured Nipples.

Related entries: Nipples and mastitis: ElTh-links

In the treatment of cracked and fissured nipples I have learned to depend upon the balsam of peru. I apply it freely, but wash it off with warm water, before the child nurses, and re-apply afterwards.

If this remedy is used for a few weeks before the birth of the child there will be no difficulty whatever with the nipples afterwards; at least this is my experience.
