I need help! I'm five weeks in to nursing and four of them have been plagued with pain for my right nipple. I had a huge Bleb that finally went away last week but now it recurring. I'm taking vitamins C and E and lecithin and probiotics and a B complex and prenatals. I off milk bc of his sensitivity. My left breast and nipple feel fie but I'm still sitting here with shooting, stabbing pains ( he's not even nursing) in y right nipple due to the bleb. We also had hi tongue clipped. I've seen my lc three times. I've allied the hospital lc. I've allied my ob, she was te least helpful. All of these things have not helped. What to do? Any advice? My bleb is no joke. It's tough and hard, not soft like I can pop it with my fingeror scrap the skin away. I'm getting frustrated, ESP bc it's coming back!

Have u tried the olive oil trick as a first option?
Also, keep an eye out for signs of thrush as it xan cause milk blisters.
I had a persistent deep seated bleb for nearly 3 months. Tried everything-repeated opening with needle, treating for thrush, moist heat, rubbing with face washer...nothing worked. I faught off blocked ducts/mastitis numerous times and was getting very despondent. The most respected lactation consultant in our state advised to consider shutting down this breast.Then a Child health nurse at our local parenting centre suggested Salicylic Acid. It apparently works to exfoliate skin and keep pore open. I was very dubious - could not find any info on it. It was a miracle! The bleb seemed to heal from deep within, became a thin superficial layer of skin, then disappeared over 7-10 days. I was amazed. Hopefully this may help someone out there!
