    Default Red Blood Blisters on the Nipple

    I have these red blood blisters on my nipple, any idea?

    I had these a couple of times when I was still pumping exclusively for DD. I usually found that if I adjusted the suction down a bit on the pump that they went away on their own. Are they painful for you? Mine usually weren't, just kind of felt irritated from time to time. Are they on your actual nipple or the areola?

    Ouch!

    Definitely change the suction level and be certain that your nipple is centered in the shield.
