LYING DOWN

 

Put a pillow or fold a towel under your right shoulder and place your right arm behind your head. With the flat of your left hand press gently in small circular motions around an imaginary clock face. Start at the top of the breast for 12 o’clock and move in a clockwise circle until you return to 12 again. Then move in one inch and repeat. Keep doing this until you reach the nipple.

This procedure should take at least four circles in total. Repeat this process with the pillow under your left shoulder and your left arm behind your head.

Finally, gently pinch each nipple between thumb and index finger. Any secretion, particularly if it comes from a single pore, should be checked by your doctor.
