    You could consult i doctor just to make sure everything is alright, but I had the same thing happen to me and I told my mom and she said it was normal. What I did was got some Vaseline or Petroleum Jelly to sooth the pain a little bit. It didn't stop hurting right away it was about five minutes or so when the stinging stopped. Just make sure not to irratate them by rubbing are scratching them. Hope the stinging stops, just letting you know you are not the only one!

      Thanks for your suggestion about what helped you.  I'm sure other readers will find your idea useful.  Whenever a home remedy like petroleum jelly helps, the problem is probably not a dangerous one.  Of course, it's good to check with a doctor for breast changes that don't go away within a reasonable period of time, especially if they are in just one breast.  I'm glad you found the solution to your stinging.
