why do my nipples feel like they are burning?

They may be dry: If you are a new to breastfeeding your nipples may become raw and irritated until they "toughen up" during the process. Lanolin or your own milk can help ease the transition.

I do not know: Not sure without an exam and possible testing. Get an evaluation and hopefully you will get the answer to this burning question. Good luck.
