Weaning and pain/itchiness
avatar
MNMommy3 posted:
So I have successfully weaned my DD. I breastfed for 6-1/2 months. Last Monday I completely stopped cold turkey. My left breast is doing alright, a little tender in certain spots, but not engorged or anything. My right breast on the other hand is still fully engorged, painful and really itchy! I went in to urgent care on Friday and the doc thought it could be mastitis again so he put me on Augmentin. I've been taking that since Friday night. Most of the extreme pain has gone away, but I still get this sharp, burning shooting pain that goes through the top of my breast, and it is still very tender in several areas. It is still very hard and engorged and itches like crazy!! Could there be something going on that the antibiotic wouldn't cover? I thought for sure after 7 days of not nursing that the engorgement would lighten up a bit.
