Im due in a few days, and I wanted to breast feed- how do I get this thing to close- it has alot of puss and blood coming from it.

  • op I'd tell ob you're going - leave message with answering service to tell ob. Our fingers carry germs no matter how clean we think we are. Don't let ob downplay the situation. With your ob being notified plus if he doesn't call in while your there tell e r you need an ob consult. e r's are supposed to have on call specialists 24 7. do let us know!!

  • you mean its on your breast? call your doc now you need antibiotics. put warm wash cloths on it to draw out the puss. some where around you or e r is a twentyfour hour pharmacy. in fact I'd call ob and tell him that you are heading to e r. you don't want the infection to spread even though its opened.

  • You do need to get seen asap. You don't want it to turn into a strep or staph infection.

  • I agree with the anon...go to the hospital, you can never be to safe when you are pregnant. Would you let us know when you find anything out about it?

  • Where is the cust and do clean it out very well! If it left a hole then pack it with cotton and cover it. You also need antibiotics because if it gets infected it will be even worse for you and baby.

  • I get cysts all the time. Just bc it's pops doesn't mean there is an infection. Put alcohol on it every hour or so. It will be fine. If it still bothers you when you go into labor have the dr look at it then.

  • Could it be a boil? It sounds like one and they can be VERY painful and you need to be on antibiotics ASAP. They will also spread to other places on your body or to other people. Be seen ASAP.

  • A staph or strep infection present during delivery has the possibility of being fatal to an infant. You should be seen by a doctor asap.
