White spot on nip. Yeast?

Well, DD and I had a nasty thrush infection for about 3 months that we finally got rid of. I thought we were done with yeast, but a few weeks ago there were a few nights that she fell asleep while latched on and I've been experiencing thrush symptoms since then.
A few days ago, I noticed a white spot on the nip that's been hurting the most. Turns out it was a flap of skin that cold be lifted up to see the "meat" underneath ( , I know). I thought it might be b/c I started pumping everyday.
Now, the skin is healed but the white spot is still there. Anyone have any idea what it is?
And anyone have a magic cure for yeast? I already tried GV and am kinda scared to use it again b/c that what I used to get rid of the last infection. I've been taking probiotics everyday, washing my nips with vinegar solution, applying olive oil w/garlic and lanolin, and swabbing DD's mouth with baking soda solution.

And sorry for the long post

Could be bleb (milk blister) (A firm, small, white spot near the nipple pore opening) It causes nipple pain that radiates throught the breast and even to the back.

You can try soaking the breast in warm water prior or nursing to drain the bleb. It may need to be lanced (this is rare).

Heres more info...

Thanks so much! Sounds like that's what it is.
