I occasionally have nipple pain in my left nipple. It also seems hard to localize, sometimes it seems like it is just outside or around the areola. It isn’t horrible, but it is irritating and I don’t know what to do about it. My nipple isn’t blanching that I can tell, I don’t pump or do anything to my breasts outside of just breastfeeding, plus I wear soft nursing bras with no wires, and most of them are cotton. When this happens, I try to express milk onto my nipple and let it dry in case it’s yeast or something, but since I can’t tell where the pain is coming from, I don’t know what to do about it. It is kind of like a burning sensation. I think it goes away after a few days, but like I said, it is quite irritating. Any suggestions? Forgot to add my baby is 9 months old.
