    Breast pain

    Advertisements
    So tonight, when little man latched, I got a sharp and burning pain. I get it frequently during a let down, so I figured that was all it was. but this time it never stopped. He has been off for about twenty minutes and it is killing me. At one point it almost brought me to tears. I put an ice pack on it,.because the cold has stopped some of the pain, but the second the pack is off the pain comes right back.
    Help! What's wrong with my boob?

    Thanks. I really hope it is not thrush. Is this worth a trip to the doctor?

    It would be for me! If it IS something like thrush or mastitis, it's better to treat it ASAP. You know if sonething isn't right, trust your gut!

    is it red? does it getting better with rubbing? do you have a fever?
    Sounds more like a clogged duct or developing mastis. Clogged duct do lots of hot messaging and pumping/nursing and steamy showers.
    Mastis you need to get to the doctor for drugs or it will get worse.

    It is not red, but rubbing and pressure help with the pain. I think ob am going to take a diopter shower and nurse the baby and see if that helps. Thanks!

    sounds like beginning of a clugged duct. Treat with hot showers, hot compresses, and lots of nursing, (try dangle nursing if you can cause it will help gravity and help empty the duct.) Also point his chin towards the pain (might have to be creative latching this way ) to will help massage it and work it out better.
    If it gets red, you get a fever, and/or feel like you have the flu go to the er and get treated for mastis.
