    Default Inflamed Montgomery gland

    So at 6 months preg. with DD #2, I developed a "bump" right next to my nipple. Went back to my dr. for something recently (DD is almost 4 months), and had her check it out. She said it's an inflamed Montgomery gland. It looks so gross! It looks like almost another tiny nipple next to mine. It's hard, nothing comes out of it, and it is really sore to nurse on that side. Anybody experience this? What can I do? It's seriously grossing me out.

    I'd dab a bit of Bacitracin ointment on it- maybe there's a bit of infection going on. My LC said it was safe and didn't need to be wiped off before baby nursed.
