  • Eye infections: Squirt in an open or closed eye. If the eye is closed have the person lie back, squirt it, then open his or her eye. 4 times or more per day.
  • Plugged eye ducts: Squirt into the eye crease at the nose. Do this 4 times one day and 2 times the next.
  • Conjunctivitis ("Pink Eye"): Same as Plugged eye ducts, but continue with 4 times daily until the crust is gone.
  • Sties: Same as Conjunctivitis.
  • Sore/cracked nipples: Rub into nipples and air dry.
  • Scratches: Squirt and air dry, bandage, etc. as normal.
  • Scrapes: Same as scratches.
  • Burns: Same as scratches.
  • Gouges: Same as scratches.
  • Diaper rash: Squirt and air dry.
  • Mosquito bites: Squirt on bite and rub in. Stops the itching.
  • Ant bites: Same as Mosquito bites.
  • Ear infections: Squirt or pour into sore ear. Can follow with warm (not hot) olive oil and garlic.
  • Yeast infections: I don't know the logistics on this one, yet.
  • Acne: Wash face with water, then follow with breastmilk squirted onto a cotton (be sure it's cotton, that synthetic stuff can scratch the surface of your skin and cause problems) puff and apply all over face.
  • Sore throats: Anyone who will let you can be helped by a squirt of breastmilk. Either by direct squirt or if applied from a sterile plastic cup.
  • Stuffy noses: Squirt into nose and suction or squeeze out as you would with saline.
  • Sexual lubricant (male and female): (males) squirt directly onto penis; (females) hand express breastmilk into a sterile cup...use as you would use KY Jelly, Vaseline, or AstroGlide.
  • Contact lenses: If you have an irritant under your lens and forgot your eyedrops, take it out, hand express to get a nice little stream going to rinse contact off.
  • Eye puffiness and redness: Express breastmilk and pour over eyes. Does as good of job, if not better, than tea bags!
  • Breast cancer: Recent studies suggests that just the simple and natural act of breastfeeding can benefit mom as well by providing protection against breast cancer.
  • Tooth decay: Scientist have tried to grow bacteria in breastmilk and have been unsuccessful!
  • Cold sores/Fever blisters: Express a small amount of breastmilk onto clean finger and apply immediately to cold sore. Ends pain and helps speed the healing process.
  • Chicken pox: Use as you would Calamine Lotion or some other ointment.
  • Leg ulcers: Someone has claimed of hearing about a breastfeeding mother putting breastmilk on an elderly relative's unhealing leg ulcers, it cleared them up too. I don't know how long it took.
  • Chapped lips/skin: Express a small amount onto fingers and wipe over lips or skin. Do not rub it in...leave a little wet. (This feels great on my chapped lips and it normally only takes a day or two to clear!)

If you have an older child/spouse who is ill, give them some breastmilk. It's a great immunity boost!
