Pain is intermittent and to the touch

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe, your symptoms are suggestive of infection.

And as your pain is not relieved with Ibuprofen so I would strongly recommend seeing your doctor for breast examination, palpation to look for an infection/ cyst/ bump.

You need to undergo an Ultrasound of breast and Complete blood count.

You may require antibiotics.

You should hydrate yourself with Gatorade.

Also, continue Ibuprofen alternately with Tylenol every 4-6 hourly.

Apply warm compresses on the affected breast.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

Ok thank you, ***** ***** possible to have an infection even if I am not nursing a child?

Thanks for the follow-up.

It can be possible to have an infection even in a non-lactating stage.

Try such measures as we have discussed earlier until you see your doctor for further evaluation and management.

Hope this helps.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
