Plugged eye ducts: Squirt into the eye crease at the nose. Do this 4 times one day and 2 times the next.
Conjuctivitis ("Pink Eye"): Same as Plugged eye ducts, but continute 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 breast milk 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! SURVEY: Does your husband like the taste of breastmilk? Please email your responses directly to me! Yes, he does or No, he doesn't. Results will be posted as I get responses! Thank you!

It soothes, it comforts, it feeds, it puts to sleep, it heals
skin, burns, scratches, and owies. And, it relaxes
an upset mom who badly needs a tranquilizer."
