Hey the same thing happened to me and I was applying that same cream .it will not get better stop using these doctors once they collect ur money and fuck up ur breast treat u like crap and are no help . Mines is way bigger than urs and it's getting better go to the super market and buy aloe the plant rub the cristal part around the nipple is good for inflammation and to prevent infection after ur done rubbing squeeze the juice out and apply it as a cream . Good luck .
