Method of Use
Apply several times per day directly to the affected nipple(s). For best results, this treatment should be combined with internally administered Chinese medicinals based on the mother’s personal pattern discrimination. In addition, the baby should be checked for oral thrush and treated for that commonly seen condition if present. Wash the nipples with soap before breast-feeding.

Formula Rationale
Zi Cao (Radix Arnebiae/ Lithospermi) clears heat from the blood aspect and resolves toxins. It is particularly effective as a topical medicinal and is commonly used in heat-clearing ointments. Sheng Di (uncooked Radix Rehmanniae) cools and quickens the blood, while Dang Gui (Radix AngelicaeSinensis) nourishes and quickens the blood. Because blood and fluids share a common source,  nourishing the blood moistens dryness. However, blood stasis hinders the engenderment of new or fresh blood. Bai Zhi (Radix Angelicae Dahuricae) disperses swelling and expels pus in the early stages of sores. It is a particularly good medicinal for the treatment of various dermatomycoses and is commonly used in topical preparations. Zhe Bei Mu (Bulbus Fritillariae Thunbergii) clears heat and scatters binding or nodulations.  It is also used in the early stages of welling abscesses and toxic sores. Ru Xiang (Olibanum) and Mo Yao (Myrrha) quicken the blood and free the flow of the network vessels. Bing Pian (Borneolum) acridly resolves depressive heat.
