I am bfing my third child. You would think that I would be an old pro at this but now I'm running into problems that I have never had before. I have milk blisters. They keep coming up. I had one so severe that it caused huge amount of pain and would not allow all of my milk to let down. It eventually caused an infection. I have stopped bf off that breast. My son is 11 months and nurses 1 to 3 times a day. Now the other side is having blisters. But this blister when it pops nothing comes out. The white inside is not liquidy it's more creamy. Does that make sense? Anyway it doesn't stop the flow of milk but it is becoming increasingly more painful. I really want to nurse for several more months but I don't know how much more of this I can take! Does anyone have any insight? btw I went to two doctors for the opposite side when I was having so many problems there. I don't think that the dr can really do anything. If I stopped nursing would the blister eventually go away?
