Are you pregnant, nursing or what? Pure lanolin helps if you are nursing, but it won't do much for your nipples if you are just pregnant. Cold cabbage leaves are soothing, but again ... it would help if you gave a few clues about your status and why your nipples are sore.
Just your nipples hurt, or the whole breast? I remember my only early pregnancy symptoms being sore breasts, where if my husband accidentally touched one with his elbow it hurt like crazy. That's from the hormones, and there isn't much to do about that besides wear a more supportive bra (that does help a lot).
I started feeling like my nipples were being ripped open about a week ago. I'm 17wks, they get really sore and have an almost burning sensation for about half an hour they its fine and 4-5 days later it hurts again. I just grin & bear it, nothing really helps during pregnancy. I'm a ftm too
