I have an area on one breast that is slightly painful to the touch. Makes me think there is a clogged duct but I can't find a hardened spot anywhere. I am doing heat, massage, and advil to see if that helps (and of course continuing to nurse on that side). But I'm a bit stumped here because in the past when I've had a clogged duct it was very obvious--really hard spot that corresponded with the pain. Am I missing anything here?
I am unfortunately very familiar with both mastitis and clogged ducts--had about 8 weeks with Scott where I had one or the other or both going on. I don't think it's mastitis.
I'd appreciate any ideas!
Update: Well, it seems to have gone away thank goodness. So maybe it was the start of a clog or something? or a clog that only happened in between 2 feedings? Whatever the case, I'm glad I'm not sore anymore! Thanks for the ideas ladies.
