One twin making me sore

I have 5 month old b/g twins and my son keeps making me sooooo sore. I had mastitis about a month ago and after I got over that I pumped for an entire weekend to help the soreness and go away and I felt wonderful come Monday. I forgot how painless bfing is supposed to be. Well, now I'm starting to get sore again. The skin around my nipple is red and tender to the touch. I'm trying to go topless for a little bit once a day so that the lanolin can do it's job. Any suggestions? I really don't want to go to the doctor if there isn't anything he can do. OH, and I've been flipping the babies' top lips up when they latch on in case it's a latch problem. I haven't noticed a difference yet but perhaps it's because I'm already so sore. Oh, and it only hurts when the first latch on but it reminds me of the pain when I first starting bfing them in the hospital. Advice please!
