What the heck is this?

I've got these surface abrasions radiating out from my nipples past the areolas onto my breasts. This showed up a day or two ago, and now it's getting worse. I've been fighting thrush for a month now, and I don't know if it's related to that. I don't know if it's because DH did a shoddy job of trimming DSs nails and he is unconsciously stroking (scratching) my breast as he nurses. I don't know if I should apply some APNO, coconut oil, leave it alone, or what. It HURTS!

Only time I've experiened anything like that, it was my LO's fingernails that were to blame. I would leave it alone rather than putting anything on it, but if you start to get other symptoms you should have yourself checked out. I hope you get the mystery solved soon!

Dd loves to twiddle and knead at my breasts in about the same place you are describing. We have had thrush too and that is painful, I feel for you there mama. You can always apply gentian violet to those abrasions. It helps with thrush and is an anti infective. It's what I used to get rid of thrush. HTH and I hope things get better...
