Q&A: Which Doctor Handles Breast Infections?
I think my breast is infected. Which doctor do I call? My OB?
Your OB would be a great choice since she may know more about breast infections, but your family doctor should be able to handle the problem too. Whomever you call, do it pronto. Moms treated earlier are less likely to wean early and less likely to wind up with a breast abscess, which could require a surgical procedure.
