anyone had one? I have one on my right nipple and have had it for about 3/4 weeks, it's sore and for the life of me I can't get rid of it!!

Yes I had a few actually, found it really uncomfortable. I used Lansinoh Nipple Cream to ge rid of it and it worked quite well. Also heard that warm compresses can help.
For me it also helped to change the angle/position at which the baby gets the breast to prevent that he puts pressure on the same spot every time.

Thanks for the recommendation for lansinoh!! I've been doing warm compresses etc for weeks with no luck, but two days after putting lansinoh on,problem solved! I didn't really think of lansinoh before you mentioned it as I had stopped using it, as there had been a suspicion it was contributing to my thrush, but a tiny bit seems to have done me no harm
