    Question antibiotic question...

    I started getting mastitis today (i've had it a total of 5 times before-this was the second time with my 2 month old son) so I called into labor and delivery and had the on call doctor write me a prescription. After I had it filled I came home and my son nursed really well and actually sucked out a plugged duct. Immediately the red streaks and hardness and pain went away!

    My question is: with my history of mastitis, should I go ahead and take the antibiotic (I had already taken one on the way home) or just not take it?
