Dear Practo user, It is not possible to give opinion without examination. However, I would like to put across few points. Does the baby latch on properly? The baby should not bite on the nipple during feeding. The whole of areola (dark brown circle around nipple) should go into baby's mouth completely. It is not clear why antibiotics have been started. Have any local creams been prescribed to apply over sore nipple. You can try feeding temporarily through nipple shield. However, in the latter case, maintenance of cleanliness of nipple shield would be important.
