Painful nodule in breast 2 months after weaning
Sounds like a logical guess. How far along are you? You're probably producing colostrum and if you have blocked pores in your nipple, I would guess the colostrum could cause a plugged duct. Can you soak in a warm bath, then gently try to clean the nipple pores? I've also heard of moms soaking a cotton ball in olive oil, then tucking it into your bra, to loosen secretions from the nipple. Then try some massage and hand expression towards the nipple. You could also try cabbage leaves tucked into your bra to decrease inflammation.
