Sore Breast (bruised); cold chills ?????
Sat, 04-09-2005 - 7:32am


Yesterday my breast became very sore; with red marks on it, sorta like bruising.
I did not lose any milk for the first two pumps but the more recent two has seen a decrease of about three ounces.
As well, I had cold chills throughout the evening and night, and was sweating profusely.

Does anyone know what this is; it feels a little better now; but is still sore.
I am also worried about my supply.

Thank you so much for any insight into this!

It sounds like it might be mastitis .. here is some info on diagnosis and treatment of plugged ducts and mastitis from Kelly Mom:
