Recently started having burning pain during nursing....and my nipples are swollen and red. One hurts much more than the other. I went to Dr and didnt get much info. At first she said it ddnt look like infection...just red and inflammed frm him teething. I dont feel like this is frm teething. its a diff kind of pain. I was later told I can take antibiotics and pump for a few days. since im allergic to penacillin i have to take other kind not safe for baby at all antibiotics. I REALLY dont want to do that. Dr even mentioned that baby is 9 mnths and can take formula or soy milk and I can start weaning!! that is not what i came in for. Is it an infection??? can it possibly clear up and go away on its own?? Baby has no signs of thrush. any info you ladies have wld be much appreciated!!
