It sounds like it might be a clogged duct. I've had them. Try nursing that side first for a while, so there's more vigorous sucking to help it unclog. Usually, it clears within a couple of days.

Oh no, sounds like a milk blister. They dont start off painful but they get that way quickly if they aren't treated. Here is a link to some info on them on kellymom :hugs: I hope you can get it gone before it can torment you! I had one of those when my daughter was 3 weeks old.

Re: HELP!! What is this?? could just be your pores...mine are that way, too. It depends on how big the white spot is. It could also be a yeast infection...

Hope you figure it out!!:thumbsup:

Re: HELP!! What is this??
i dont think its a yeast infection bc ds's mouth looks ok and its not hurting!

the white spot is really small and hasnt gotten anybigger throughout the day...i will keep an eye on it and for now treat it as milk bilister...
