Fissure of nipple
Fissure of nipple refers to dry, sore, irritated, or cracked nipples. This typically occurs in runners and surfers, from chafing against clothing or the surfboard. It also occurs in women who are breast-feeding.
A purified lanolin or a hydrogel dressing can soothe cracked nipples and help them retain moisture.
