I had mastitis for over a month before getting treated after it developed into a big red painful abcsess. I was given an antibiotic, which I took until complete. The abcess went down and it doesn't hurt anymore. Now there's a dark purple/red mark where it used to be. Is that what the abscess looks like when it's healed? The mastitis began and lasted through october/november and now its january and I've broken out into a rash on my front side and I've been nauseated recently. I went to the dr but they gave me cream for scabies. I was told to use ths on my children and husband because it is contagious but so far I am the only one broken out. I am very itchy and afraid I may run a fever and be miserable all over again because the dr. Said we can agree to disagree.
