Our priority is always the health and safety of our patient advocates as well as other attendees of our events. We will continue to follow the recommendations of the U. Centers for Disease Control and will immediately post when we have new dates for the listed events. We ask your patience and support of METAvivor during this difficult time.
Nipple Fissure: Symptoms, Treatment, Prevention, and More
Causes In breastfeeding women, nipple fissures are usually caused by incorrect positioning while nursing, or difficulties with suction or latching on. They can also be caused by engorgement of the breasts. In athletes, nipple fissures are caused by chaffing of the nipples. It may be made worse by coarse or damp fabric, or during cold weather when the nipples are more likely to be erect.
