    Default Milk blister

    Wasn't sure where to put this. So DS weaned a few months ago. I'm 20 weeks pg. I've noticed a yellow spot right on my nipple and I've been ignoring it thinking it would go away. Well it hasn't and I don't know how to get rid of it since I'm not nursing now. Anyone?

    Is it painful? I would get in a warm bath, which will soften the clog, and massage the breast and areola, to see if you can't loosen it up it that way. You can also try a sterilized needle to release the pressure. I have read that doesn't hurt, but realistically, OW! So I would try the bath method, gentle massage of the breast method first.

    I'm just kinda sore/tender in general. I'll try that though. Thanks

    Are you sure it's a blister? At 20 weeks, it could easily be dried colostrum.

    Good point! Colostrum is yellowish.

    Yea I'm pretty sure. It was sticking out w no exit just a spot only on one side. I know I've got colostrum already...leaking sorta flaky. Anyways, I think I got rid of it. I had to really squeeze it. Yikes and kinda gross!

    And we just found out it's another boy for us. I'm gonna be so stinkin busy.

    Congratulations! You won't have to buy new clothes- it's a nice plus of having 2 of the same gender.
