Answer: Hi. Hi dear. soaking your nipples with a warm saline solution, rubbing the area with a washcloth, then nursing or pumping.  While the nipple is healing, apply a warm, wet compress before nursing to help open the milk ducts, then rinse the affected area with saline solution after nursing and gently pat dry. Use nipcare ointment ,totally safe just apply it on the nipple and before feeding wipe with wet cotton.Do not wash with soap as it will make the nipple dry. To prevent milk blisters make sure that your baby is properly positioned, latched correctly and sucking well. Hope this helps
