What is your question?
What are you taking the antibiotic Bactrim for ?
I see ...how long have you had the Mastitis ?
Is it improving with the Bactrim?
Do you have redness / soreness of the affected breast ?
Has your doctor been able to obtain and send a culture ?
Ok so it sounds that it is improving ...
How long have you been on the Bactrim?
Oh ok ....just 2 days so far on antibiotic then you need more time ....
Yes you may post pics to this page
That is fine...
Ok I see the prominent pimple on the areola -- not that large -- I expect that will clear up for you ... Some veins near the surface of skin on the side of the breast ..
Was that first picture earlier and 2nd and 3rd later showing improvement ?
Rash clearing is good sign. .
I think you are on right track ...just need more time for antibiotic I think here ....
The pain involving nipple should settle down as well for you in next several days ....
The Humira you need for the ulcerative colitis but it does make you more susceptible somewhat to infections ..that is true ...
Thank you and I hope that you feel better soon!
