My Mood:
There is something wrong with my breast! Help!

My son is now weaned and my breasts seemed as if they were winding down on the milk production. I had some discomfort, but I would pump or express a little to relieve it. This morning I woke up and one of my breasts had a wierd bulge in it- if felt like one of the ducts (or a few it was quite large) was completely filled with milk. I expressed some of the milk so that it was not bulging so much and then put on my bra and went through the day. This evening as I was getting ready for bed, I looked in the mirror and noticed that the same breast had a red inflamed spot in the same area that I had noticed the bulge this morning. It isn't really painful when I touch it, I tried to see I could express some more milk but got much of nothing. But still my breast has a red inflamed spot right above and extending down to my aereola. Do I have an infection? What do I do?!! Someone that may know, please help!
