    I was feeling better within about 12 hours of starting antibiotics. Try taking some nurofen and putting a hot face washer on the red area. I'd give it 24hr and if no improvement head to hospital.

    Ouch, it really is the pits!!

    I was really sick with mine for about 3 days. I found massaging the lump in a hot shower helped. If your condition continues to worsen don't hesitate to get checked again, mastitis is really nasty stuff.
