Had BA 4 days post. Placed through the nipple. Steri stops all around the nipple area and 2 big ones have formed. Called my doc and he said if they rupture just clean with water and keep area dry. But they seem to be growing. What should I do?

A: Many acceptable methods of managing blisters

Blisters near incisions following surgery may from tension, reaction to adhesives, and swelling. There are many acceptable methods of managing the superficial wounds. I would recommend you follow your surgeon's advice as he/she is most familiar with your particular situation.
