I woke up yesterday with a slightly swollen area on my right breast, right next to the areola. It's very sore to the touch, but not at all lumpy or hard. At first I though my 4 month old might have given me a hicky in the night, trying to latch on. But today, it's just as sore, if not a little more so. I exclusively breastfeed him and haven't pumped in more than a month. He's been fighting the breast lately, and coming off a bit suddenly while still sucking, so my nipple on that side is also quite sore. I really want to avoid that breast, but am making sure not to so my production doesn't go down. Any ideas on what the swollen area might be?
