It is possible that you have mastitis, due to infection of the breast tissue. You will have to consult your doctor for an examination, as soon as possible. In the interim, you can continue pumping the milk and breastfeeding. To alleviate the pain, you can put cold cabbage leaves on your breasts. Put the cabbage in the refrigerator. This really works well and you can use it as often as needed. Please do not stop breastfeeding - your baby will not get sick.
