Brief Answer:
Please, get consulted and evaluated!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks so much for this query.

I have reviewed your information fully. This is suggestive of a postpartum infection. I will like you to be seen by your OBGYN as soon as possible for a comprehensive evaluation and treatment. You would need antibiotics for complete cure.

I hope this helps and guides. I wish you well. Feel free to follow up me and keep me updated.
