Thanks Cait and Chris... I'm not sure Lach would go for a nipple shield at this stage in the game, but if it get's worse, I'll certainly try one.

At the moment, I'm doing what you are Chris and restricting feeds from the breast in question!

My son is 19 months old and I've been having a similar issue for months now. It feels like I have a papercut inside my nipple. Just when I think I can't stand it anymore, it gets a little better--still painful, but not so bad that I can't stand it. Then I have days like today, when I refuse to let him nurse on that side. A lactation consultant I spoke with on the phone suggested it was some trauma--perhaps he bit me--though he has only bitten me a couple times ever and not for a long time. I keep saying I'll actually go to the clinic and have it looked at but do I make time to take care of myself? Nooooo...

Oh Rach, it sounds so awful. I can clearly remember dreading each feed and digging my fingernails into the arm of the chair when my little one latched on, the pain was so bad.

Nipple shields may help (highly recommend giving them a try) but just watch they don't reduce your milk.
Or can you express into a bottle for a while? I know Lach loves his boobies but could you make it through a few days not feeding on that side at all? The salty water soaking sounds like a good idea as well.

Looks like you have a new Spanish friend above!!

I keep having trouble logging into my ID and had typed out twice yesterday a response to this only to have it vanish into the realms of cyberspace to be never seen again.

Going topless probably isn't an option for you is it - your little one is probaly like mine (see's boobie, wants boobie)! Perhaps try and put aloe vera gel or similiar on it to try and get it healing quicker.

Another option may be to have a long soak in a salty bath and submerging the breast.

I had some other ideas yesterday but cannot remember them - if I do I will be back ;-)
