    Default What could this be?

    My bbs are always hurting. I assume it's just from pumping a lot but it just seems like it shouldn't be this bad after almost 3 weeks. My right bb has a red splotch on it and they gets kind of itchy. Is that normal? I wondered if it was just from them still stretching from when my milk comes in and I get engorged.


    (ugh, tried to edit my mistakes but my iPad is acting up and won't let me without retyping it all).

    Could it be a blocked duct? I don't have any experience with this, but your symptoms sound a lot like what I have read for a blocked duct or mastitis?

    I agree with carrie. Could it be an infection?

    Sounds like a clogged duct to me

    Info on Kellymom: http://www.kellymom.com/bf/concerns/mom/mastitis.html

    If you start to feel sick it may be infected and antibiotics can help - hope it clears up

    I'm on my second round of abx for mastitis. It is anything but itchy! It is very painful, plus flu symptoms of fever, chills, and body aches. I've never had a clogged duct so maybe its that? I hope you feel better soon! You can try hot compresses before you pump and see if that helps. Filling a diaper with hot water stays warm much longer than a wash cloth.

    Agree with the clogged duct. Try massaging the spot gently while nursing and in the shower, and put a warm washcloth on it a few times a day. Also try massaging it while pumping to fully drain it. Is there a lump with the red spot? My bbs still hurt occasionally and it's been 6 weeks almost!

    Sounds miserable I hope it clears up for you.

    (Also I agree with you on the iPad thing haha. Since the boards changed it is so annoying to post or reply from my iPad now!!!)

    My mastitis had stripes in the red spot. Be careful, call the dr. if it gets any worse!

    Thanks everyone. I think I'll call Monday. I've done hot showers and massages while pumping. I wondered if it was the beginning of thrush!?! I've never dealt with thrush so I have no idea what that is like either. I just know that all the bfing/pumping set backs make it hard to want to continue.
