Antibiotics for Mastitis While Breast-Feeding
What To Think About
The entire supply of antibiotics prescribed should be taken, even after symptoms of the infection have cleared up.
Resistant bacteria have become more common causes of infections. If your mastitis is caused by a resistant strain of bacteria, the first treatment with an antibiotic may not cure it. Some women who have mastitis may need a second treatment with a different antibiotic.
