Re: nipple soreness

It sounds like you got something foreign in your nipple and now it is infected. White puss with or without blood generally indicates a minor pimple but colored puss means likely infection. I would go in and get it treated.

Let us know how everything turns out.

Re: nipple soreness

I agree with Lindaru, some kind of infection is most likely. Not hard to treat, but needs treating.

Re: nipple soreness

Are you breast feeding? Either way, you can get a yeast infection on your nipples. (Sounds weird but it's true.) It's treated with the same kind of cream you use for the other kind we are more familiar with. Symptoms include nipple soreness, maybe some itching and the doctor says it can make your nipples appear shiny. I've had these before. It's more likely when breastfeeding but always a possiblity even when you aren't. If you have a family doctor and call their nurse on a doctor on call. They will most likely know how to treat it over the phone and possibly call you in a cream or an antibiotic. This is more likely when you call a doctor on call. Just call your local hospital and ask to speak "(your doctor's name)" and they will page them for a call back.

Hope this helps.
