I think I might have a plugged duct. You'd think I'd have experience with this by now but its never happened before.
There is a sore spot on the areola that has a small bump. No blister, so I ruled that out. I thought maybe I had gotten a bug bite but when I touched it I found that there is like a pea size bump actually under the skin that wasn't visable. It was pretty painful while nursing but felt a little better from having my LO drain that side. I massage it in the shower after and expressed anything that I could. I've been keeping a warm cloth on it tonight and will have his drain that side first thing when he wakes in the morning.
Is there anything else I can or should do? Its not too bad now but it just came on tonight and I don't want it to get worse. I am just getting over the flu so I'm sure the sickness is what brought it on. I was really dried up on Sunday from being dehydrated and had tons of milk today now that I can keep fluids down better.
TIA for any help!
