Hi welcome to health care magic........
Breast pain with fever in a nursing mother looks more like a breast abscess or cellulitis , get a surgical consulatation and if there is an abscess it needs to be drained along with a course of antibiotic and antipyretic like paracetamol.

Pediatrician Dr. Diana Divakar's  Response
Hi Samantha,
Wellcome to the healthcare magic forum,
First of all, as a pediatrician, i would like to ask y is your mother breastfeeding since 2 years. Ask her to stop doing it....Breastfeeding is recomended only till the child is maximum 1 1/2 years...Its harmful to the child as well, since his appetite is fullfilled by the inadequat and non-nutritious breastmilk.As for your mother, fever, pain in the breast, headache could be because of breast engorgement and if severe pain, it could be an abscess too....Ask your mother to
#take hot fomentations on the breast,
#stop breast feeding,
#take some analgesics and
#if pain and fever persist to see a gynecologist.
Dont worry, things will be fine...Hope you know wat to do now....Take care...Bye....
