One nursing mother shares with The Doctors that she bathed her child in 10 ounces of breastmilk after her baby experienced excessive bug bites and she found the next day the bites were gone.
Surgical breast specialist Dr. Kristi Funk says this is not as far-fetched as it might seem. She explains that breastmilk is packed with antibacterial and antiviral properties and can help soothe inflammation.
The Doctors note that using traditional cow's milk from the grocery store would probably not have the same effect, due to most cow milk's hormone and antibiotic content.
Dr. Funk also shares that mother's milk can also soothe sore nipples for women who are breastfeeding by applying it and letting it dry. It can also help with diaper rash and soothe conjunctivitis, better known as pink eye.
