    Unhappy sore nipples at 11 months? who do you see - LC or OB?

    my L nipple is sore it's similar to the feeling when you're just starting to BF. I don't know why or how it started so its kinda difficylt to treat.

    My son's lower tooth came out a month ago and coincidentally i had plugged duct, which was resolved within 24 hrs. However there was a little white thing that was left on my nipple, but it didn't bother me until yesterday. Last week i felt another lump on my L breast so i breastfed a lot to avoid plugged duct and it cleared out. Then the pain on my nipple started. I thought it was yeast because my son just finished taking his antibiotics. He doesn't have thrush (i think so) and my nipple doesn't look red or pink. Yesterday, it bled a little when he was nursing. Cracked nipple maybe?

    Who is the best person to see? I'm avoiding mastitis or anything serious. And i want the pain (uncomfortable) to stop. Pain usually goes away while nursing. Most painful during latch-on. Teething...poor latch-on...plugged duct...yeast...i don't know!

    i'm just putting lanolin on it. I also thought it was a bleb the 1st time i had plugged ducts. I tried to pke it using a sterilized needle but nothing came out. It was not raised but the color was white.

    could be just a crack...
    As long as your not running a fever and you don't notice any pus comming from the wound you might exscape a trip to the doctor.
    try the ideas here:

    thrush would be burning itching pain.

    Don't know if this helps - - sounded like good advice from PP. But just in case, I always have sore/extremely sensitive nipples when I ovulate for a few days. It's kind of surprising at first b/c like you said, it feels like I'm a new nurser again with the tenderness. Then I realize, oh, hey, I could be ovulating. (: Just writing in case this could be causing your pain, and would definitely mean no trip to LC or OB. (:
