May I know how long it takes to recover from breast infection?
My GP gave me a 3 days course of antibiotic and today is the second day. I still feel my breast tender and pain when I press it. The most painful part is near my armpit

So sorry to hear about your Breast infection.
A course of antibiotics, usually at least 5 days, will help plus some painkillers for the first 2 days or so when the antibiotics have yet to kick in. You also need to massage your breasts gently to relieve the discomfort from congested breast tissue . A warm towel on the painful areas is usually quite soothing
Happy Nurturing !!
