I was diagnosed with mastitis and I have been on Dicloxacillin for 24 hours. I still feel achey, especially the mass in my breast, so i've been using hot compresses, baths, massage, as well as nursing and pumping that breast. Is there something else I could be doing to relieve the clog? i'm stressed if i dont get it unclogged by the end of my antibiotic course it might come back. eeeep.
Also, I am 10 days postpartum with light bleeding and the blood has taken on a faint odor since starting the Dicloxacillin- it has a mild sulfur odor. Could this be a potential side effect of the antibiotic? anyone with a similar experience?
