I am very excited about this since I've been dealing with a lot of pain off and on for a few days now. I had some plugged ducts along with a milk blister first...got rid of it and then the very next morning saw a white spot on my nipple! So the past two days I've been doing warm compresseses and soaking all day long before feedings. Nothing was really happening then all of a sudden tonight the pain was becoming unbearable. I soaked twice for ten minutes each time and then rubbed with a washcloth, finally had to try to pop like a pimple and alas a hardenned piece of milk pops out!!
But now I want to make sure I don't get it again and now that I have an "opening/crack" I want to make sure it doesn't get infected.
What's the best thing to do?
Also, is it normal to still feel some pain? Or could it be possible I didn't get everything? I expressed and a lot of milk came out.
