Lansinoh is the worlds purest lanolin and has been specifically developed for the treatment of sore and cracked nipples alongside help with positioning and attachment (often the underlying cause of sore nipples).
Lansinoh works by the process of moist wound healing. Studies reveal moist wound healing offers a soothing environment for sore nipples and as no scab is formed healing is accelerated.
Lansinoh coats the raw nerve endings and can provide immediate relief from pain.
By providing a partially occlusive moisture barrier, Lansinoh lanolin slows down the body's natural evaporation process. This allows the skin to restore its own natural moisture from the inside out.
Lansinoh lanolin can be used also to soothe: chapped lips, nappy rash, dry skin on elbows, heels and knees, itchy stretch marks, minor cuts, burns and skin abrasions. Useful for all the family!
Directions for use:
With clean hands soften a small amount of Lansinoh between fingers and apply to entire nipple area after each feeding or as needed. Lansinoh lanolin does not have to be removed prior to breastfeeding.
For your comfort and to help protect sensitive nipples you may also apply Lansinoh before showering.
Lansinoh should be used in conjunction with addressing the cause of the soreness.
If soreness does not start to ease within 24 hours of commencing use of Lansinoh, or if the problem persists, the user should contact a Lactation Consultant, Breastfeeding Counsellor or their Health Care Professional.
Lansinoh lanolin used by itself is not a treatment for sore nipples caused by thrush (Candida albicans) or a bacterial infection.
Lansinoh lanolin can be used in conjunction with treatment for skin conditions. Unbroken skin is the best barrier to infection, however Lansinoh relieves dryness that can result in cracking and promotes healthy skin, it may prevent some secondary infections.
