I had a breast reduction with free nipple graft a week ago, My question is, do I put the bacitracin ointment all over the nipple, my nipples look black and I am afraid they are dying.

Make sure that you are staying in close communication/contact with your plastic surgeon; he/she should be involved with every decision involving your care. Online consultants should not be doing so.
