I believe I have a clogged milk duct and I don't want it to turn into mastitis (if it hasn't already). My right boob is really sore and there is a pink patch on it. It has been sore since Wednesday night and today is the first time it has been pink. The other two times I had mastitis I had flu like symptoms and felt really bad. This time, other than my boob being sore, I feel fine. What should I do? I read nursing is good but we are down to about 5-6 feedings per day and I only feed on one side each time. So if we follow our normal routine, I have already feed on the right side twice and will only feed on it one more time today.
