Allergic: bactrim cleocin good if not breast feeding if nursing -----all drugs must be discussed between ob-gyn and surgeon.

In brief: Antibiotics

Antibiotics are used to treat mastitis.
If there is an abscess (collection of pus), then drainage will be needed as well. You should have this managed by your doctor.
