I know those are signs of mastisis (spelling?). I cant go to the hospital or doctor for a few days (hubby already took 3 days off work to help with the newborn and we have a 1yr old with no sitter) so I need to know how to make myself feel better until then. Pepto Bismal makes me throw up immediatly so I cant use that. I cant lay down without feeling more like crap and I get the chills horribly. I havent slept in days (he was born on Aug. 13th) and need some help. Any suggestions at all would be so appreciated! Thank you in advance to all who respond.Answer Question
The longer you wait, the sicker you will become. You can pump to get some infection out. I had a bad case with my last child. The doctor told me to pump and continue to nurse, but I still had antibotics to help clear up the infection.
Call your doctor any way. Maybe he can send a nurse. ASK!
