Thread: Milk blister?

  1. #1

    Default Milk blister?

    My DD is currently 3 months old, and I believe I have a milk blister. Almost three weeks ago, I had a plugged duct, but I was able to get relief from frequent nursing and heat/massage. Since then I have had a white dot on my nipple. I thought it was getting better because I could barely see it, but then I started to develop what I thought was thrush. I called my doctor and lactation consultant, and they first prescribed nystatin cream and then Diflucan. Ever since I started the cream (two weeks ago), the milk blister has gotten bigger and bigger. It now covers almost half my nipple and is very painful. I don't know if they are related at all. Anyway I have tried soaking my nipple in Epsom salt and putting a olive oil soaked cotton ball on my nipple, and it is still there! I called the LC through my insurance and they read me the kellymom article on how to treat milk blisters, which I had already read myself!! I tried today to pop it, but it started to bleed, and it's so big that I don't know where exactly to pop it. I am also really bad with pain, and it makes me dizzy to think about doing more. Should I call my doctor? Has anyone had their doctor treat them for this before? I don't know what else to do. I am scared my daughter is going to go on a nursing strike because there are times when I will accidently scream out in pain when she nurses on that side. I know I shouldn't, but it hurts so bad right now that I sometimes can't help it. Any help or suggestions would be great!
    Thank you!

    It looks like we missed this one. I'm so sorry!

    How are you feeling now? Did you see your doctor?

    It does sound like a milk blister/bleb, but obviously not one that's easily cleared. I would definitely suggest talking to your doctor if you haven't already and it's still there.

    Let us know how you're doing, when you get a chance!
