Toddler and nipple shield

It's this or we wean. I have a gigantic gash under my right nipple that causes excruciating pain while nursing. I stopped nursing on that side and am so ridiculously engorged. I pumped and bled heavily. I expressed in the shower but it didn't help. I put two coats of liquid band aid in attempt to protect it and pump just enough to relieve engorgement but the wetness and friction peeled it off and I bled. Our last hope is tons of lanolin plus nipple shield. I don't own one though so before I go buy one, is a 13 month old who has never used one going to even accept it? I'm not opposed to weaning. My DD2 gnaws on me constantly and that's most likely where this gash came from. I'm tempted to go buy Sudafed and dry it all up but thought we'd give this one last effort. Do you think a 13 month old will nurse with a nipple shield?
