All day yesterday I had really painful lumps in my breasts which I know were blocked milk ducts. Come 7pm, I had a fever, crazy aches and pain, vomiting and a sore red spot. I know these are symptoms of mastitis, so I fed Bub like the world was ending and managed to clear most of the blockages but I'm still in a lot of pain, red spot still there, feels like I've been nipple crippled.
Anyway I took myself to the doctor today, he was about 70 and very old school. He told me I'd three quarters cured myself and he'd give me the antibiotics as a precaution but not to take them as there doesn't appear to be an abscess.
I still feel like crap, should I just take them? Has anyone else had their mastitis clear on its own?
