    Default very painful bump

    Hi, I have a very painful bump on my nipple. It hurts to pump or nurse. It started out looking like a pimple but it's so swollen now. Its not rig!ht on the top but just to the side. It hurts soooooo bad..any ideas or suggestions?!

    Sounds like a milk blister: http://kellymom.com/bf/concerns/mother/nipplebleb/

    If you get to the point where you decide you must break the blister, don't think that you must go to a doc to have it done. Do it yourself using a sterile needle. You're better equipped than anyone else on earth to know when the needle has gone too far.

    I had one that came on during pregnancy. I worked on mine after a hot shower. I didn't use a needle. It took some time and some breaks and some labor breathing but I worked it out.
