Being treated for mastitis - advice would be so grateful!!
Hi everyone . I'm new to this forum and hoping someone will be able to give me some advice.
I'm a 29 year old healthy female, no children, I noticed a pain in my right breast over Xmas but didn't think anything of it. 3 weeks ago I realised that my right breast was also swollen. The pain is a mixture of burning pain and sharp pains. I cannot feel any lumps but the breast is firmer at the top right hand side. I do not have any nipple discharge and no rash.
I went to the doctor on Monday and have been given 4x500mg flucoxolin antibiotics a day for 7 days. So far the swelling or pain has not changed.
So I was wondering how anxious I should be about this? Should I not be worrying as I don't have a rash which is a symptom of ibc? Doctor did say to go back next week for a referral to the breast clinic for an ultrasound if the symptoms don't go away but I don't know how worried I should be
I thank anyone in advance for any support or advice xx xx
