Re: Clogged Milk Pore

Those I've known who've had clogged milk pores ended up going ahead and pricking it - it didn't hurt and was VERY effective. (nice stream of milk came out after it was pricked)

So long as your needle is sterilized, it is safe to do. You can always try poking at it with the needle (without actually puncturing it) to see if it is tender if you're worried it will hurt. Often a clogged pore will right itself, but if it does not it can lead to a clogged duct which is more painful and more problematic (and harder to fix if the pore is still clogged).
