Dr. Jack Newman's All Purpose Nipple Ointment for Breastfeeding Mothers
All Purpose Nipple Ointment (APNO) was developed by Dr. Jack Newman of the International Breastfeeding Clinic in Toronto. A combination of three effective ingredients treats the multiple factors that can contribute to sore nipples for nursing mothers. By combining these ingredients into one treatment a woman can get relief sooner without having to try or use multiple products.
All Purpose Nipple Ointment Ingredients
All Purpose Nipple Ointment includes mupirocin, betamethasone, and miconazole as active ingredients. Mupirocin is an antibiotic that kills bacteria that form in cracked, irritated nipples. Betamethasone decreases inflammation that is the main cause of pain and soreness. Miconazole is an antifungal that treats Candida albicans – a fungus that can cause infections in the nipples of breastfeeding mothers.
These three active ingredients come in an easy-to-apply and gentle ointment with a lanolin base. Together they form a soothing nipple ointment that provides relief from painful, inflamed nipples for nursing mothers.
