UPDATE Help! Something is wrong with my nipple!

It's gone! I let me son nurse because he is the stronger nurser and it is all better!!! Thanks mamas!


It has a white spot on it and it hurts. It looks kind of like a pmple but it won't pop. What could be wrong? I don't really have money to go to the doctor but if I have to I will. Has anyone ever had anything like that before. It hurts to nurse and well, it hurts to sit here too (just not as bad as when I nurse). Please help!

Thats normal, i got them with both kids, they hurt like heck!
take warm showers and also put cold packs on your breasts, its a nerve/vein and will go away on its own.
I hope you feel better soon, they do go away

Okay. Thank you so much!!!! I will go put ice on it. I was freaking out about having to go to the doctor and spend all sorts of money! Thanks again!

Re: Help! Something is wrong with my nipple!

The white spot sounds like a plugged duct to me. Nurse on that side as much as possible. Take a hot shower with the spray directed onto the sore bit and massage the area out towards the nipple. It should clear soon
I've had that a few times and it has always cleared with a good amount of massaging and heat. The plug will probably come out as a tiny hard white lump and you'll be back to normal again. Good luck!

It is only sore on the nipple. Where should I massage?

Re: Help! Something is wrong with my nipple!

I have a duct that cloggs. Looks and feels the way you describe. I use warm compresses. sometime massaging it gets something out that I'd jokingly call cheese - pretty white and pretty solid.

Re: Help! Something is wrong with my nipple!

Where do I massage? It is right on the end of the nipple and the rest of my breast isn't sore.
