I recently took some antibiotics prescribed by my GP as my 6 month old stitches didn't feel right and the GP said they could have an infection. The pain stopped after the antibiotics but the GP prescribed some Estregen cream to soften up the scar, However when I read the contraindications I saw that it's not advised if breastfeeding, so I didn't use it.
Well it's been a month and that pain I had before is back so I'll go back to he GP tomorrow. However I don't want to get stuck in a cycle of taking antibiotics if this is going to keep happenning. I was just wobdering if anyone else has experienced this, and what the treatment was. The GP did aso mention potential surgery if I keep having issues but I'm really not keen on that idea either.
Also has anyone used that crream while breastfeeding?
