Sore b**b. M+1 1 child; Ballarat, Australia 1538 posts

LO is 10 months old and he's breastfed. My one b**b just started hurting yesterday and it hurts to touch, or if any pressure is put on it. I don't think it's a clogged duct cause both my b**bs feel the exact same.

what could it be? :/

Milk blister?

Can you feel any hard spots in them? Is it your b**b or just your nipple? Does your b**b look any different, like red streaks on them?
Could it be thrush?

There's no blisters and sometimes there's lumps in them when they're full, but I think that's normal. Even when they aren't full, they still hurt. My nipples don't hurt what so ever. They look normal too, so I have no idea what it is.

I'm probably going to make a DR appointment, but I don't when them to I'm dumb lol.

Then it could just be hormonal. Maybe you are ovulating or gearing up to start ovulating/your period.

That was my first thought! When I lifted up my arm I felt a bump near where my b**b and armpit hurt, but then it went away. I've never had this problem before and I'm 10 months PP, still breastfeeding and haven't had my first period yet.
