Hello.welcome.It could be either milk engorgement of breasts or may be cracked nipples.You should use both the breasts for the feed alternatively lest milk engorgement takes place.If nipples are cracked then you can apply MASSE cream on them.Good luck

Thanks for query,
It seems that you might have cracked nipple or may be some soreness on the nipple.
there may be engorgement of breast due to more milk collected.
Clean your nipple before and after breastfeeding.
If soreness or cracks are there apply antibiotic cream and clean the nipple before feeding.
Ok and bye.
