Swollen areola

Hello ladies,

The last day or so it has gotten a bit sore to nurse my ds on the left side, which is the more active side. I just nursed him after his nap and noticed that the top quadrant of the areola is visibly swollen and is starting to extend past it. The swollen skin is noticeable warmer than the rest of the breast.

Does anybody know what this is? How to fix it?

Any help would be great!
