    I got it when I was breastfeeding james, my boobs got a red rash all over them and ached. I thought it occured when there's a build of of breast milk cos the breast isn't being emptied properly.
    Didn't know you could get in in pregnancy either, I'd ask your midwife to take a look :hug: :hug:

    I got it twice after Jake was born. My boob went really red and sore and I got flu-like symptoms, like aching limbs and shivering and sweating. Dont you have a non-emergency midwife number you can ring?
