Mastitis? with no fever?

I think I have mastitis ...

I can feel two pea lumps in my one breast right on the edge of the areola. One the size of a pea, the other twice the size of that! And the one is right on the edge of Cara's mouth when she latches OUCH! They are beat red and hurt like H-E-double hockey sticks! BUT I have no fever I sure do feel extra tired and run down but what do you think? I'm going to call the doc in the morning but what can I do for a little bit of pain relief in the mean time?

Re: Mastitis? with no fever?

It could just be a clogged duct. In my experience, clogged ducts were much different than mastitis. I always got severely shaky, feverish and weak with mastitis. Clogged ducts just hurt like heck.
Good luck.

Sounds like a clogged duct. Try putting a warm washcloth on it and massaging it.

ok so I know you could possibly leak blood and pus but isn't it supposed to come out of your nipple in that case? For risk of sounding like a total retard, it is coming out one of the little pores in my areola! I took off my pad a few minutes ago and it started pouring out! total TMI but it is yellow and has come clots of blood in it ewwww off to call the doctor ...

clogged ducts. RUB RUB RUB. HOt shower. As painful as it is to massage, its teh best thing. I used to have DH do it, cause I was a wimp! LOL. they will break down quicker if you rub and NURSE NURSE NURSE. You LO will help work it out!

its normal for them to leak pus out of the areola though? that one totally threw me for a loop
