Dreaded Mastitis!!

Does anyone know what happens if I can't clear out blockage?? It doesn't seem to want to shift no matter how much massaging and putting baby to breast. Is it an instant thing or can it take a few days? GP put me on antibiotics, too.

DD, despite putting a lb on since Monday, has never once emptied an entire breast in one feed. She comes off. Grrr breastfeeding DS was a piece of cake compared to this!!!

The antibiotics will work fast but keep feeding from the infected side and massaging, warm baths etc. it will clear on its own with the antibiotics (my last bout I went cold turkey and stopped bfing on drs advice and it cleared with just antibiotics) but it will be quicker if you can help it.
Sorry you've got it, it's so nasty.
