Is there any chance that you son has cut a tooth or he may have attached wrong at some point causing it to be raw and sore, Keep using the lansinoh cream and if you can try to give that breast a break from feeds or if you can do that feed on that side second after he has already feed on the other side. If it doesnt start getting better you might want to see a doc and when he is attaching just be very mindful that he's on properly
