What does it mean when your nipples hurt and you have milk coming out of your glands?

Galactorrhea

Chest-breast-nipples
Milk coming out of the nipples is called galactorrhea. White discharge is milk, which may be caused by breastfeeding or pregnancy. It can also be caused by excessive prolactin (sometimes caused by a pituitary adenoma), trauma, or medications. Talk to your doctor for a history and physical, though you also may need labs or imaging to find the cause.

Pain

Nipple pain could be due to many possibilities including and not limited to friction, hormonal influences, inflammation, infection, or tumors. By far the most common cause is hormone influence with water retention and distention of the tissue. Check with your gynecologist for proper therapy and diagnosis. Hope you feel well soon.

what does it mean when your breast and nipples hurt?

Breast Pain

Chest-breast-nipples
Constant, dull aching pain in the outer extremities of the breast is a normal problem and often results from changes in the breast tissue, often referred to as "fibrocystic" changes. Pain in the nipple may indicate infection, or it could result from injury or friction. Other causes of breast and nipple pain include benign tumors, mastitis and cancerous tumors (these usually do not cause pain).

Rash

Itch
Means you should definitely be examined by a doctor since this could be an infection or simply an allergic or irritant dermatitis. I would not do or take anything until you see a doctor who can examine you.
