What shape is it? How is the baby's growth? This may or may not be related to the thrush. Thrush is a thick white coating on her tongue which you cannot scrape off.

I would try putting heat on it and see if it decreases in size. If not, or if it keeps recurring, I would see your health care provider to determine whether you need antibiotics for a smoldering infection in the duct. Sometimes it spontaneously resolves. ...Read more
