Nipple fissures - Definition


Definition


Nipple fissures are tiny breaches of the skin located on the nipples of a woman. They generally appear during the first days of breast feeding. Most often, they are due to the baby's bad positioning during breast feeding, or an incorrect grip by the mouth on the breast, which may be rectified through a midwife's instruction during the first days of maternity. The principal symptoms accompanying the fissures are red and painful nipples, and increased pain during breast feeding. Light bleeding during the breast feeding is also possible. Rectification of the grip on the breast, proper hygiene, as well as the sprinkling of breast milk, for healing purposes, on the fissure after breast feeding, often allow the nipples to return to normal. In case of serious pain, the mother can also use silicone nipple guards.
