I was told that its a milk duck. After I had my baby,the clot got sore as the milk started to come in. Then it got infected. I used antibiotics for 14 days. Didn't get better. I was send for test at a hospital.confirmed to be mastitis. My main concern now is my baby is 1 year and 2 months old and the milk duck is still here. What do i do?

Dear |Anonymous, you must go back to your doctor. The signs which you mention above are not normal. The mere fact that you have already had antibiotics and received a diagnosis of mastitis (inflammation of the breast), tells you that you need further treatment. Do not hesitate to go and see your doctor. It is not good for your general health to let things go on unattended. (MCH).
