Early treatment key: While cellulitis of the breast is not common, it can occur during pregnancy. Because it is an infection early diagnosis and treatment is key. Never take any medications without your obgyn approval. It sounds as though you are getting the care and treatment you need. Good luck with the pregnancy.
