Re: Do I have a milk blister??

From your description I would say you had/have a plug and that resulted in a milk blister and now you are back to just a plug. An untreated plug can and often will result in mastitis. My immediate recs are - go with out your bra if possible, massage the breast from outside in while nursing, use heat on breast when nursing, cool when not, take ibuprofen.

I could type out all the things to do but this link has all the info and more.

Also, be careful with popping milk blisters, you can introduce infection.
