Thread: breast cellulitis

  1. #1

    Default breast cellulitis

    My infection is not in my breast, it is my breast. But there isn't a lot of information online about breastfeeding with a staph infection.

    I am taking amoxicillin and clindamycin, both are compatible with breastfeeding. I had an aspiration yesterday. I am still breastfeeding DD. I just make sure she doesn't come in contact with the covered area. It is on the underside outside of my breast. I just make sure to BF DD in cradle hold.
