    To me that sounds more like a nipple thrush which can also be very painful. With mastitis you would get redness on the breast and a fever, do you have a temperature? You should go and see your doctor though, as for thrush you would need an antifungal as would your lo and for mastitis you would need antibiotics.

    I agree, go get checked out hun. With my mastitis I had more physical symptoms like fever and exhaustion.
