Which doctor do you see?

I have an abscess in my breast. It popped and drained itself the other night, but today the redness has spread and it's starting to look super ugly. I'm thinking of going to the doc for this but I'm not sure if I go to my GP or my OB/GYN.

Anyone?

GP. I remember i had a breast issue related to my pregnancy and my OB said to see my GP. I would go right away it sounds like it could get serious!

Re: Which doctor do you see?

I'd tend toward ob/gyn but agree that whoever can get you in first would probably be best.
