Very sore breast - can anyone help me work out what's wrong

DS is six months. He's got his top teeth. Just lately he's been sick with a cold, and to comfort him (and get a little rest myself) I have been putting him to feed beside me in bed at night. This 'helping himself' latch seems to have resulted in his top teeth damaging my nipple.

My nipple has a small mark on it, sort of covered over with a layer of yellow (pus?).
There's no lump under it that I can feel, but my nipple it hot and reddened.

The pain is out of proportion to a little bite mark though. My whole breast hurts, a sort of aching 'biting' pain. Any ideas, pls?

Ouch, No idea - presumably you have ruled out thrush and mastitis. Bumping for you....

Could it be a blocked duct? Boob really tender and sharp pain while feeding?
