    Yes, I've cleared mastitis without abs 8/9 times. Once the lump and fever goes it usually means you've gotten on top of it. It should stop feeling bruised in a day or so.

    What side effects, out if curiosity?
    It's scar tissue from the blocked duct unfortunately.
    Depends what you were prescribed but diarrhoea, upset tummy and colic like symptoms are most common.

    I had mastitis really bad once, went and seen a midwife the next day and was told to take nurofen as its an anti inflammatory and hot face washer on the effected area

    If you've still got lumps you could try visiting a physio who can do ultrasound treatment on your breast - It's one of the recommended treatments for mastitis at one of the leading maternity hospitals near me.

    Lecithin tablets are also great if you continue to get blocked ducts. It certainly helped me...

    Here is some info...

    Thanks everyone. I think I'm going to take the ab tonight, the pain is lingering and I'd rather be safe than sorry.

    Hope the pain subsides quickly for you. If you or bubs end up with side effects, might be an idea to get some probiotics. X

    I got mastitis about 7 times over 6 months until I took the 'ideal' antibiotic which we were worried I might be allergic too, was fine, and never got mastitis since, that was over a yr ago.... I had tried second choice ones but they barely touched it....

    Is that the one that's similar to pencillin? I had to take that once for mastitis and it cleared up my sinus infection as well!
