Re: Mastitis - Can DS's ped prescribe the meds to me?

I have gotten a prescription for mastitis at my son's doc before.. I have gotten mastitis several times myself and I don't take antibiotics for it anymore. Some extra rest, extra water intake, and having your baby nurse on it as much as possible should help clear it up quickly. If you go to , they have lots of natural remedies for it as well.

Re: Mastitis - Can DS's ped prescribe the meds to me?

oh yeah, the fever and chills and all over sick feeling is terrible, too. As if the severe pain wasn't bad enough. I got the chills and was constantly shivering. I was under a sheet and 2 thick fleece blankets and I was still shivering. then I got really really hot, so hot I had to put my son down. it was like my body couldn't make up it's mind on how I should feel.

lovewool, I am actually thinking about not taking the antibiotics this time. they were out of stock and won't have them in until tomorrow, so I haven't gotten them . I have been improving and not getting worse. I had that awful day and then started getting better. right now, it's red and tender, but not very painful like it was a couple of days ago. As soon as I woke up with it, I started with rest, pumping the good side, nursing the bad side as much as possible, ect. this go round wasn't as bad as the first round about a month ago. last time, I cried and cried I was hurting so bad. I only cried a couple of times when I had to touch my boob to nurse my son. If I recall correctly, last time I had a /"false healing?" where i started to feel better, but then got worse. i guess only time will tell.
