I am 34 years female having two kids , younger one is seven years old. At his birth time because of same unavoidable reasons i didi not breast feed him for ten days, during that time i suffered with fullness of milk in my breast ,which i ejected by pressing them. But during that time i had swollen my left under arm. Which i reduced by giving heat massage. From that time i am having lump which are three not so big, but can be feel by touch. When pressed little pain is there. Last year i talk to a surgeon who said nothing but lymph nodes and gave me levofloxacin for ten days. After only two three days lumps reduced to very small but not disapeared. Doctors said its okay, nothing to worry.
But last month they once again appeared but with more pain and redness, even i felt a little pain in my left nipple and arm when pressed. The doctor again prescribed azithromycin 500 mg for ten days with followup of levofloxacin 500 mg for five days. During this the lumps reduced but not totaly disapear. The size of lumps reduced to 10% after the medicine. Doctor assured that all is okay. But i am in fear. What is this why it apears again & again , and why its not disapear totaly.
Please help what is this?
