Default white spots, not plugged ducts

I have a couple of white spots on one of my nipples, they are not plugged
ducts as there is milk coming out of them and no blockage behind, they are a
little sore, but not excessively so, any ideas?

Thrush? It happened to me - if you try to get the spots off, does it
sting a bit?

no, not at all, I tried to get one of them off, thinking it was a plug and
it just bled slightly, but healed fast, with a spot in exactly the same
place! Would stinging be a sign of thrush? I had a slight shooting pain in
the same breast in a different spot yesterday, but it doesn't really fit the
standard description of thrush, as it was just in one spot that was feeling
full, it felt like a warning sign, I'm going to get engorged, feed the baby,
which I did and it hasn't come back.

When I had a plugged duct long time ago, I had a white spot and I
pierced with a clean needle. Then the plug was cleared thanks to the
baby. but the white spot stayed for about 2 weeks. The milk was coming
out of it but there's not pain. There's just the white spot and nothing
else is different. It just went away after two weeks.
I thought it's hardened milk inside this pore that just took a while to
clear. My baby or I didn't get sick from it and it never bothered us.

Hmm, if it doesn't sting, it's probably not Thrush, then. Phew! You
don't want that.
