Hi welcome to Healthcare magic.
The most commonest cause of pain in a breastfeeding mom would be due to infection-which could be cellulitis or a breast abscess. So need to consult a gynacologist and get a check up done and take a course of antibiotics. Warm compresses would provide some relief from pain and take antipyretics for fever.
Hope this helps ... thank you .
