Prevention of breast diseases during the lactation period

The objective. Prevention of breast diseases during the lactation period.

Patients and methods. We examined 47 breastfeeding women aged 23 to 30 years with fissures of nipples grades 1–3. The cream «PureLan 100» (100% lanolin) was used for treatment.

Results. After 3 days of treatment in women with grade 1 nipple fissures improvement was noted in 12 (54.5%) cases; with grade 2 – in 19 (47.4%) and with grade 3 – in 2 (33.3%). By the 11th day of treatment complete healing of nipple fissures grade 1 was noted in 21 women (95.4%).

Conclusion. The cream «PureLan 100» has a good healing effect and might be recommended as monotherapy in nipple fissures grades 1–2. In grade 3 fissures the cream «PureLan 100» should be used as part of complex therapy in combination with other medications.

Key words: breastfeeding, nipple fissures.
