TMI alert ... I have got a strange boil thing on my areola that burst in the shower last night, and some bloody pus came out. I put a load of antiseptic cream on it, but it is swelling up again and is red and hard, a sort of small sized lump underneath the skin somewhere below. I think I may have got it from wearing Lilypadz too much, and maybe blocking a sebacious (sp) gland of some kind, perhaps. Does anyone have any thoughts or advice? BTW my eight week old DS seems to be feeding fine, as the boil thing is at the edge of the areola, but the whole thing aches.

Hey Boff <waves>!

Bumping for you.

Have been considering posting a pic of my own completely-unblisterlike possible milk blister, to see if anyone has had similar. I'll show you mine if you show me yours wink!!!

Yo Juwesm! <waves back>

It's not as red on the outside now, so not much to see, just a lump if you run your finger over it.

And mine just relieved itself quite spectacularly, so not much to see here either! Hopefully yours will resolve on its own and not trouble you again grin
