Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The conditions that you experience can occur due to various possibilities, including:
Bacterial infection of the breast
Blocked milk flow channel
Nipples, for example, from being bitten by a baby
Wear a bra that is too tight
Breastfeed with only one breast
And it could also be due to several other reasons depending on the results of the examination. Our advice, you should check your condition with a general practitioner or obstetrician for further examination including a history, physical examination and support if necessary to further narrow the possibility. The handling you will receive later depends on the results of this inspection.
Meanwhile, all you can do is compress your breasts with warm compresses, feed the baby in a comfortable and alternating position, make sure your breasts are the right size and not too small nor too large, massage the breasts gently while breastfeeding to facilitate breastfeeding, rest enough, enough water is needed, and if it is still painful, may take over-the-counter pain relievers by reading the rules of use listed. So, hopefully answering your question.
