Babys latch is most important and should be corrected.
Apply your own hind milk in the cracks as it has anti infective properties.
Most nipple creams available on the market need to be wiped before feeding the baby and that can actually cause more abrasion.
A sterile silver coin is also considered to bring relief and ensure that the cracks do not get infected. It can be worn snugly against the nipple inside the bra. However ensure that you sterilise it well.

See that your baby is latching well.
What you can do
1.Apply your own milk.
2.Apply Homeopathic Calendula ointment. Wipe it off completely before you feed the baby and reapply again.
Clean with Sterile gauze and antiseptic before applying the cream.
3.Along with external application do go for Homeopathy Medicine to hasten healing.
