good day!!!

my 15 year old, who is not breastfeeding and not pregnant, has mastitis/ deep abcess.

we did get abx. and have completed 5/7 days

it is still very firm, painful to touch, but the redness is gone.

1. why does a 15 year old get this?
2. when do we consider the next step?

thanks in advance!

Clogged ducts. Antibiotics is the treatment. They should work. May need another course. If it won't go away, then drainage.
