Well, it seems each child I end up getting a plugged duct at least. Last one had a nasty bout with mastitis.
I am going with Kelly Mom regarding a plugged duct right now, but I am not noticing any improvement.
The plug is at 1 o'clock and half way between nipple and top of the breast. I have tried massage (ouch), compressions and frequent nursings and still does not seem to be a change.
It has a red patch that is about 1in*1.5in and very painful. I was running a low grade fever yesterday and last night. Today I just seem to have cold sweats, but no fever.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
