My nipple on one side is suddenly sore. not just when feed but just in general. I have ahd thrush before and it doesn't feel teh same and there are no white spots on babys mouth. my little guy has started teething and i am sore on the side he generally prefers for nursing...could that be the problem?

When that's happened to me, it's always been a plugged duct. I can never see it, but I've ended up with mastitis twice. Yuck!

Is that possible?

It could be from teething, esp since baby prefers that side so it gets more "use".
