I took her to gp today and they said come back in72 hours if not improved. It looks like it is spreading. I have two worries, will infection damage her breast. The other was when googing, her symptoms are the same as inflamatory breast cancer. I need to share those worries as holding it inside is making me anxious.

My dd had an infected nipple which had a red hot area around her nipple with a lump underneath. She was presribed antibiotics and it went.
If it's spreading I would get her checked again incase it is infected.

LadyGeraldine - Google is NOT your friend in this instance...

She could have a simple infection that will clear up with the Ab'd, but please don't worry any further by looking up symptoms on the can end up with a brain tumour dx by googling migraine symptoms...!

Hope the Ab's kick in and your DD is ok
