Blood blister or herpes?

Have had slightly sore pain on right side since yesterday. Have noticed just now dark red blister on nipple.

Having now read about blood blisters (lansinoh, rugby position, lots of air). I came across herpes on the nipple.

I get cold sores on my lip about once a year. How do I know the difference between herpes and blood blister?

Ds is 12 weeks and has been exclusively breastfed and is doing well.

Thanks x

It will be a blood blister, herpes is a lighter red and weepy and full of clear fluid. Your blister is dark red so it won't be herpes. I'd have it swabbed for confirmation though if you're very worries
