Hi all, I was wondering if someone has had an experience similar to mine. I started pumping when dd was 1 week old and EPd until we figured out nursing 11 weeks later. After the first week of pumping, I noticed that I had a red rash around the flange area on my left breast. After a week or so, the rash went down a little. But at five months pp, it's still there.
I've been to a dermatologist a few times and she doesn't know what it is. She wondered if this is just something that routinely happens to women who pump. So I thought I'd put the question out there to you all: have any of you gotten a persistent pump rash from the us of maybe too-small flanges or too-frequent pumping?
