    Default Mastitis

    Do I go to GP or MCHN?

    Feel dreadful. I can't find a lump but my entire left boob feels like it was in a punchup.

    I feel kinda weak. No fever but very achy.

    Could I have it?

    Sounds like it might be - I recommend getting into a GP asap.

    Mastitis is awful

    Bub is not draining my boob and so I need to express.

    Is it safe to keep this milk that I express, or should I bin the milk that I express due to the mastitis?

    Its definitely ok to give the expressed breast milk or keep breast feeding with mastitis, it's just really painful!
    Did the doctor put you on antibiotics?
