Re: Painful! Please Help!!!!
Okay, to me this still sounds like a bleb. This doesn't happen every time, but sometimes when I have a bleb I end up with exactly what you're describing: a tiny crack that looks like a crater or puncture mark. The fact that this came in conjunction with a plugged duct also points to bleb, because generally when I have a bleb there's a plug behind it.
If you buy my explanation, then lanolin on the crack/crater and watching the baby's latch should help.
From my perspective, what you describe doesn't sound very "thrush-y"- the pain is only during nursing, there's no itching, no yeast rash, no burning... But thrush can present in atypical ways, so I would keep my eye on it. If the crack grows or you get more cracks, if the pain intensifies, if you start feeling itching/burning, seeing skin changes (redness/pinkness, peeling, flaking, white patches), then it's time to seriously consider thrush.
