Thanks for the query.

The symptoms looks concerning to me. You may be developing an abscess / infection in your breast.

It needs to be checked by your doctor and you may need a prescription of antibiotic for it.

Visit your doctor/surgeon at the earliest.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Wish you a speedy recovery
