Hi,that is very painful and difficult to feed the baby.Apply Nip care ointment 5-6 times/day.It will take at least 2 weeks to heal.Can express and give the milk to a baby till the pain reduces to some extent.Feeding technique is very important.Meet the Gynecologist to rule out any infection at the local site and to learn the correct method of Feeding.
