I went to see my Gyno Dr. and she though that it was not Mastits because the lumps were in my armpits not the breast! She suggested going to see a Dermatologist and gave me a perscription for antibiotics. The hot sun on our vaca and hormones she said probably caused it. I think that the lack of pumping for 6 days did and that it is Mastitis! I got the same lumps in my armpits the first week of BF.
Gynos are truly inept with breast issues in general. It's sad and they really need to include lactation education as part of the OB specialty.
See your primary care doctor, maybe? I had much better luck with her than with my OB when I had repeated infections.
Are the lumps red? How big are they?
