So I think I have mastitis, not certain because I can't see a dr til later. I did however notice something disturbing, I can express pus from the affected breast. :( does this mean it's an abcess?

Well seen gp in urgent care and all they really said was to take an antibiotic and if it's not better in a couple of days to go see ob. And because of where I work (point system) I can't just take tomorrow off to see ob or even pump like I should. This is so depressing. :(

Aww, I am sorry. I've not had mastitis before but I've heard it can be a pain. If you get on the antibiotics as quick as possible, they should help. Can you take some natural immune support also? That might help fight off the infection, as well. I hope you knock it down soon, mama!

I feel loads better today I think the antibiotic has begun to work. Plus I have increased my vitamin c intake. Thanks for responding Becca. :)
