How do you treat a milk blister? • KellyMom.com
By Kelly Bonyata, BS, IBCLC What is a milk blister? A milk blister, or blocked nipple pore, is also called a bleb or nipple blister, or simply “milk under the skin. ” It occurs when a tiny bit of skin overgrows a milk duct opening and milk backs up behind it. A milk blister usually shows up as a painful white, clear or yellow dot on the nipple or areola (see photo), and the pain tends to be focused at that spot and just behind it. If you compress the breast so that milk is forced down the ducts, the blister will typically bulge outward. Milk blisters can be persistent and very painful during feeding, and may remain for several days or weeks and then spontaneously heal when the skin peels away from the affected area.
Rise and fall of Jack Spot, London gangster
THERE have been some legendary figures at the head of East End gangland over the decades. From the mid-thirties to the mid-fifties the main man was Jack Spot, though like many others, much of his legend was self-penned. JACOB Colmore, John Colmore, Jacob Comacho, Jack Comer – he was known by a multitude of names. But in a colourful age, (his rivals included Manchester Mike, Newcastle Ned and Edgware Sam) Jack Spot was his common title. He claimed it was because he was always on the spot when trouble needed sorting. More prosaically it was said to be a childhood alias given for the mole on his cheek.
Laser Treatments for Age Spots
Lasers are powerful tools in the beauty arsenal, and certain laser procedures, as well as therapies that use specific types of light, do an excellent job of zapping age spots, freckles, and other hyperpigmentation woes. Commonly referred to as laser skin rejuvenation or resurfacing, some of these procedures can often be performed in less than an hour, others in about two hours. The depth of penetration — how many layers of skin are removed — will determine recovery time. Light resurfacing might not require any, while the effects of deeper techniques will take a few weeks to heal.
