Taken flucloxacillin and metronidazole for periductal mastitis. Now have discharge. Should I be worried?

I spent 24 hours in hospital receiving intravenous antibiotics for periductal mastitus and was released and given flucloxacillin and metronidazole . I am at the end of day 2 taking these. I was given a scan in hospital but there was nothing to drain, this evening I have noticed a lot of discharge . Should I be worried or is this the antibiotics working to clear the poison from my system?

Thanks for writing to us.
The discharge that you can see is commonly a reactionary fluid discharge and usually subsides spontaneously. In case it is a purulent discharge then the pus needs to be drained surgically.
