Brief Answer:
Seems to be infection, oral antibiotics & anti inflammatory medicines

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at HealthcareMagic
According to your complaints it seems to be due to infection in the breast tissue.
I would recommend you to take oral antibiotics and anti inflammatory medicines.
If I was your treating doctor I would recommend you to take tablet cephalexin 500 mg twice daily for 5-7 days and tablet ibuprofen twice daily.
Oral antibiotics are prescription drugs and you need to see the doctor in person to get them.
Regards
Dr Asmeet
