you have infection underneath your nipples its rare but can happen. last time when you got it some bacteria might have remained ,which has caused infection again. you should go to doctor he will start antibiotics,you should take the antibiotic properly for number of days mentioned by doctor.
then as the antibiotic acts it will cause the swelling to burst again like last time, then visit the doctor he will clean up the cavity properly leaving no chance of infection again.
thank you
