    Goodevening, happy new year to you too. You shouldn't stop breastfeeding as what you have described isn't caused by breastfeeding. The pain you are having in your breast might even have resulted from breast engorgement so you should try to express or use cold compress. You might be having malaria so i'll advise you go to a clinic and have Malaria Parasite test done and be treated appropriately. Take care.
