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!
