Blisters. Thrush or not?

DD is 4 mo now almost five and the last 2 days my nipples have been very sore.  Yesterday they hurt so bad I was crying.  They hurt the entire time and am breastfeeding and intermittenly in between.  Today I noticed that on the left nipple(which hurts the worst) I have 3-4 clear blisters.  I thought because of the pain I might have a yeast infection but I checked DD's mouth and found nothing wrong, and she is not fussy when nursing.  Could it still be thrush?  I have had a milk blister before but only one and it was yellow.  Can I have 3-4 milk blisters at the same time?  Any thoughts?

 I found this:

I would have them looked at if you have any question as to what they are.

I got those once, and it was an incorrect latch with my firstborn.  They lasted forever, and actually ended my bf him.  Do you hear clicking sounds when your lo nurses? 

Anyhow, have them looked at...you can take lo to the peditrician, and they can give your baby something for yeast.  That will help!  Good luck, and if you can get it checked out, then do that.  Hugs!
