Thread: Hard bumps

    Default Hard bumps

    I have been breastfeeding for 3 months. Everything is going well; however, last week I had a milk blister (I think) tenderness has subsided for the most part and now I have a hard lump on my areola (tmi it is a little tender but nothing bad. Is this normal?

    Is it a hard lump on the skin or inside the breast tissue? If it is on the skin, maybe it is just some dead skin from a blister or an off latch or something. If it is a lump in the tissue then it is likely a plug. When I get plugs, I give the area a nice firm massage in a hot shower then nurse in different positions throughout the day, massaging the breast before each feeding.

    with Phi. Alternately, could it be an irritated or infected Montgomery gland?
