Nipple Ointment, All Purpose

Dr Jack Neuman’s All Purpose Nipple Ointment:

1. Mupirocin 2% ointment (10 grams)

2. Nystatin 100,000 unit/ml ointment (10 grams)

3. Clotrimazole 10% (vaginal cream) (10 grams)

4. Betamethasone 0.1% ointment (10 grams)

Mix all four ingredients together for a total of 40 grams

Apply sparingly after each feeding, or alternate with gentian violet.  Do not wash or wipe off, even before next feeding.

Each of the ingredients may be replaced with a substitute (i.e. fucidic acid could replace mupirocin, or ketoconazole for nystatin).
