Will it work on my piles.

you know that she can get it free from a GP?

good price though and great product I just got my last month after my midwife told me about it and she has advised me to show the sample sachet to my GP so I can get a prescription

I can vouch for how good this stuff is. I was unable to get it on prescription but 1 tube lasted me months

Brilliant stuff and this IS a great price....but if you ask your midwife/GP you'll get it free on prescription.

Amazing stuff!

With a newborn its much easier to send your other half to a shop rather than go to GP for prescription with the baby

There are other creams you don't need to remove before feeding btw

btw, Kamillosan as well as Tesco's own brand is also available and are both "leave on formulation"

If you put some own milk on the nipple it will heal quick. I didnt use cream but i always expressed a little bit of breast milk and covered my nipples with it. Its miracle but within a few hours the sore was healed
I didnt know i can get it on prescription.

surely you can just call the doc and they can generate a prescription for you which your Oh can collect. You don't need to go to the surgery for everything sometimes a call to a helpful receptionist is all you need. The GP will obviously see that you have just had a baby.
That way you don't have to move, take baby anywhere or pay! Well that's what I did anyway.

I wasn't referring to the OP. I was referring to the comment that said its easier than taking the baby to the GP- which by the way I notice you wasn't petty enough to comment on the fact that the GP will be shut on that one. I was commenting to say that you don't have to go into the surgery. To be fair its open tomorrow and this got posted today- no need to try and be clever. Lets not forget with bank holiday the shops close early but of course you only wanted to try and contradict what I said for some reason- no one else. It was a general comment not towards to OP. I have my opinion and my own experience of childbirth as do everyone else that commented on here. Coming from the person who didn't know you could get it on prescription I thought my comment would be helpful to ANYONE jeez.

Only person who is looking for the fight is you. Everyone just wrote down their opinion as did I so please leave me out of your trolling. Thanks

Good discount, evil price

Personally I think if someone can afford a medicine they should pay for it. Getting a GP to write a script for this sort of thing is a bit much IMO. (That should throw a cat amongst the pigeons and take the pressure off veja_du and Alex7911's little heated debate..)

I was looking for this for missus for her 'sore nips'.
Got a cheaper alternative for £2 and it seems to be working

Please no prescription charges debates!! YAWN!!!

Wow! People really do get irritable when they have sore nipples!

it cant be used whilst breast feeding, i think. the philips avent cream is much better and can be left on whilst breastfeeding

helpful receptionist, sorry, what's one of those, most think you're interrupting their gossip time or that they're a triage service, or at least that's my experience.

I used Kamillosan as it could also be applied to baby sore bum.

I am a Health visitor and can confirm this is safe to use whilst breastfeeding. Lansinoh is an ultra purified grade of lanolin, and can be used even by people who are allergic to other forms of lanolin. been specially developed to help soothe and protect sore, cracked nipples in breastfeeding mothers. A bargain at this price as we often recommend mothers to purchase this, it works a treat.

why why why

Loved the receptionist comment, not just me then. Most seem to think they are doctors.

These products always get right on my tits!

you dnt have to remove before breast feeding .

is anyone else slightly turned on by all this breast talk??

my wife was using these but went doctors and he prescribed an alternative which she says is just as gud and now she judt gets it monthly on repeat prescription pickd it up from chemist

The wife swears by this stuff and also the Lansinoh breat pads which are currently on offer on amazon for £3.67 a box on amazon!

If your wife's nipples get really sore get some Multi-Mam compresses from Boots... They are mega expensive (£10 for a box of 10) but really helped!

Isn't a prescription about £6 anyway???

to be honest breast milk helps some people.just dab a bit on after each feed.
Edited by: "mamaoftwo" 1st Apr 2013

a week ago was on offer in sainsburys cheaper than that

@Tiorzol1 - Exempt from paying prescription charge for one year after birth of baby (also during pregnancy)

It is also amazing for sore/dry skin! No puns please, but I get real bad chapped lips and it works wonders! Also dry patches of skin and my husbands psoriasis!
