Don't be discouraged since Mastitis is a very difficult thing to treat and it often becomes almost a chronic condition. There would be no way that only after 5 days of antibiotic therapy that this would be resolved. It may take several courses of antibiotics to do the job so keep in touch with your Dr.s so that they can prescribe the appropriate treatment as the antibiotic may need to be changed if the first one doesn't work.  Regards ....
