    Ouch poor girl! It is looking much better.
    I would try and soften the scab, either by soaking it or by applying a salve to it. Should make it easier and less painful to remove.

    It is pretty soft now - after a few days of Lanolin my husband says (he milks her, she prefers him - lol) - last time I tried 4 days ago, it was hard. . .
    we cover it is lanolin, but that isn't quite enough, it seems.

    I think it must have been a combo of how swollen the teats were and small tears from the swelling and then scalding from amniotic fluid - maybe the babies were dead in utero and made the fluid toxic? ? ?
