Lately I've noticed more of a 'pain' while breastfeeding, mostly at night. I'd attributed it to my daughters lazy-sleepy latch and teeth.

All last night however, it hurt worse and worse, and I woke up with swelling in about half of my areola (vertical half). It hurts to nurse! But there's no redness or anything else. no teethmarks...

can it be something else?

we treated with gentian violet yesterday because the baby I watch in addition to dd has really bad trush, and i wanted to make sure we didn't get it....

any ideas on what this could be?
