All-purpose nipple ointment (APNO) is a term used for a recipe of an ointment created by Dr Jack Newman and used by breastfeeding mothers.
Often mothers with sore nipples do not have time to try out different treatments that may or may not work, so for most effective and convenient treatment we recommend APNO which is the combination of various treatments in one ointment.
APNO has triple properties: antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory effects and contains ingredients that help deal with several causes or aggravating factors of sore nipples.
It is recommended to apply it sparingly after each feeding. Do not wash it off or wipe it off, between breast feeding.
Magic or miracle mouthwash is a solution used to treat mouth ulcers/sores (oral mucositis) caused by some forms of chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
Magic mouthwash usually contains these basic ingredients:
- An antibiotic (e.g. Tetracycline) to eliminate the infection
- An antihistamine (i.e DiphenhydramineHCl) to reduce inflammation, pain and discomfort
- An antifungal (i.e Nystatin) to reduce fungal growth
- A corticosteroid (i.e Hydrocortoisone) to treat inflammation
It is recommended to use magic mouthwash every four to six hours. The solution must be held in your mouth for one to two minutes before being either spit out or swallowed.
