right above my nipple (white dot) is a red grouping then just above that is a curved red line. my breast is really sore especially at that area but sore all over and painful when Ellie latches. there is no hardened areas it's not hot to the touch, no fever. any ideas?

## UPDATE##
Tada!!! it is mastitis :( I got a prescription for dicloxacillin 250 milligrams 4 times a day for 7 days. hopefully this will go away quickly :/

So im thinking maybe it is mastitis? It looks worse and looks like its spreading? Theres only 2/2.5hrs between photos. But it looks like theres a line heading away from the half circle line.
I only got 3hrs of disturbed sleep the last two nights. And my allergies are in high gear so I feel "crappy" but I don't know if part of my crappy/achy.feeling is from possibly mastitis?

Thanks :)
I think I'm going to call my primary to see if they can squeeze me in?

It looks like mastitis. Even if its not, I think this one deserves a call to the Dr. I hope you feel better soon!

It's crazy! How the heck do I go through crazy over supply with engorgement. The whole first year with nothing and then get mastitis at 15 months!?!?
Grrrr.

Lookes irritated in general. Have you tried some creams, ice packs or heat pad see if that helps?

It's probably mastitis. But I just got back from a camping trip from he# and now I think every speck, every bump, every scab and rash, is from a tick bite. We were in a restaurant eating breakfast and my one dd had a tick crawl across her forehead. It hadn't bit into her yet. But my one ds got bit by a tick in the car on the drive there; it bit him but didn't burrow in. So now I'm watching him for the "bulls eye" rash. I'm obsessive and neurotic over the ticks.

Definitely looks like mastitis! I just had it a few weeks ago at eleven months after battling over supply, exclusively pumping, and many clogged ducts in the first three months.... some of us are just lucky like that i guess lol. I hope it clears up soon!

You would NOT like where I live! We have a special spray that we use on ds's clothes that repels them. Before though he would have at least 6-7 tick bites per summer.
