I recently visited by family practice after growing concerned with some pain in my right breast along with a new white blister on my nipple. I furiously massaged it in hot showers and also tried hand expressing to see if it were a clogged duct and the blister did disappear. During the appointment, I shared descriptions of the pain and other symptoms but after checking me out, I left with no diagnosis and therefore, no course of treatment. Instead, they suggested I get an ultrasound of my breast if the pain persisted at the same intensity.
While I did not get the ultrasound, I do still have the pain (although it subsided)and I am worried that it could be thrush. My DD has had no symptoms but I am wondering if an occasional rash on her bum that has been reappearing after some of her larger poopies should have raised more concern in the past. With the arrival of her first teeth, she has been comfort nursing and nursing more frequently. We are 8 1/2 months in and despite a few bumps along the way, she really has had no big issues. Am I being overly anxious or should I go get a second check-up?
