Erh GP wasn't much help just inspected it and said oh no real sign of infection maybe just rest it a few days. WTAF?! Yeh stop feeding on that boob because that will help!! Anyway spoke to chemist who agreed with me it sounds suspicious as it came on so suddenly and suggested Canesten cream for a few days so I will try that and hope it clears. At least no signs of mastitis. And no thrush visible in DS2s mouth either.

Could it be dry skin and skin breaks? Or your cycles starting to return and ovulation?

Spoke to the LC (was actually the midwife at his birth! Small world up here 😂). She thinks most likely thrush so I am going to treat for 5 days and go see her next week if it hasn't worked. So glad I have a plan of attack.

DS is 6 mths and I recently just had this. Toe curling pain like from the inside. I checked his latch also and it was perfect. After 2 days of almost crying with every feed, a small white dot appeared on the end of my nipple- turns out it was a blocked duct right leading up to the nipple, also called a milk blister or bleb. It was excruciating!
I used heat compresses and rubbed it in the shower with a flannel and then an exfoliating glove (I got desperate). It took a day of all of this and then when he fed I felt the blockage sucked out. Hurt so much I almost screamed... When I took him off, most of the white pimple thing was gone with a bit left behind. Took another few days to clear up. Try googling milk blister. I didn't have any visible symptoms for a few days prior to the white dot except pain.

If its thrush, treatment should work really quickly.

Hope you can get it cleared up soon (whether its "just" thrush or something that sounds even worse like that described above...ouch!!!)
