Need to get checked: You know, lots of things can happen as you first start nursing. If the pump was clean, probably not related to the rash; but really since a baby is involved and could be affected, you need to have your breasts checked for irritation, inflammation, and infection.

Used breast pump: If the "red lumps" are tender, swollen, warm and skin appears infected-have you ob-gyn/fp/internist evaluate the area(s). If you are concerned about the pump-purchase new tubing and have a lactaton specialist evaluate your use of the device to see if any tips/advice can be made.
