I have these two little holes/punctures on my breast on the areola. They hurt and I just noticed them like 30 mins ago. I don't know if it may be where my little one has bite me or what. I send a pic to my sis. She's as clueless as I am.

I don't know of any condition that would cause holes so my thinking is bite marks. I'd say breast milk and coconut oil are your best bets. Keep the area as clean as you can (no soap though). Nursing manners for the little one.

That is strange, i expect teeth marks if it was from a bite.

Look up blebs on Kellymom.com and see if anything sounds familiar.

I used Google image after looking it up on Kellymom ... Now I'm terrified!

Sorry for the pic but I still can't match it to anything. :( I have two more little marks like that except smaller and on the nipple.

Don't mind the purple thing. It's something on my phone that I can't seem to take off.

Could it be a spider bite? If it was teeth you would have felt it. Unless baby is resting teeth on nipple and over time it has slowly created a scratch. Dumb question, does baby have top and bottom front teeth?

Yes. She has 8 teeth total. I put a picture above of how it looks.

I would think its just babys teeth. Try and make sure her latch is correct each time. Air dry after feelings, pump on that breast if nursing hurts too badly. If it becomes infected or other symptoms pop up I'd call my dr.
