The only real concern is infection. You should keep the area clean and apply an antibiotic ointment such as Neosporin daily. STDs and cancer are not a concern. If there is discomfort, you can take acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) and use an ice pack for 10-15 minutes several times a day. Don't apply an ice bag directly to the breast, but wrap it in a towel.
Please let me know if you have questions.
All the best,
The only thing close to an antibiotic is vagisil and amoxicillin.. which is better?
Vagisil isn't an antibiotic and amoxicillin (if you mean the oral tablet) isn't necessary. I was referring to the antibiotic ointment Neosporin, or Bacitracin. If you don't have either on hand, you can just apply Vaseline, Aquaphor or other emollient cream (even the Vagisil) until you go to the drug store.
