Avatar f tn Ive been paying really close attention and im thinking its not my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>milk</span> or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> nipples.

I tried researching but i hate Google, its useful but u get 200 different answers, some good and some that make u think everything is life threatening. I dont think he has thrush but im not a dr.

8924846 tn?1410576501 I didn't get any <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>milk</span> while being pregnant but about two days after <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> son was born <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>milk</span> finally came and I was able to pump. I'm assuming it might happen again with this pregnancy.
218870 tn?1240259255 I didn't completely dry up until almost 2 years after <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> son. I had him Feb 04 and finally quit getting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>milk</span> 21 months later. I doubt it is a brain tumor, but it could very well be hormones, or the fact that you never dried up and are now just noticing it. Id call your OB just to be on the safe side though.
Avatar f tn If your not producing enough milk either you're not eating enough or you're dehydrated all the time I'm not sure why you're mentioning that you're lactose intolerant that has nothing to do with your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>milk</span> production Drinking cow's <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>milk</span> is not going to help you produce breast milk nor is drinking soy or any other kind of milk If you breastfeed as often as you're supposed to with a new baby and you're not trying to starve yourself to lose pregnancy weight and remember to drink plenty of
173820 tn?1224939758 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> son is almost 3 years old and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>milk</span> just won't dry up! I successfully got <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> son to latch one time in the hospital with the assistance of my mother, a nurse, and the lactation consultant/specialist. Needless to say with triple F breast nursing was as overwhelming for me as it was for my son so I decided to pump. I pumped for less than 2 months and when it was time for me to go back to work I switched to formula.
Avatar m tn If assumingly she was HIV +ve, what are the chances that the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>milk</span> particles would enter <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> system and I become infected. Do I warrant any HIV testing to be safe? Please advise.
Avatar f tn Hi I am only 12 and i have very very sore <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> as they are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> round the nipple and i can feel a lump,, they are very sore and tender i have to hold them when i walk. before you all ask i am no pregnant and i have never done anything with a boy thanks.
Avatar f tn Only on the day I visited doctor it was around 37.2 and went on for a week. But not it is almost 36.5. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> BP is 140/80. I had no so called ARS fever ie very high fever with muscle pain. I stopped my gym for 3 weeks to see whether I can get any muscle pain but I did not get any as that I the muscle pains by lifting weights. I couldn’t identify the swollen lymph nodes though I googled almost everything to identify the swollen lymph nodes. And there was a drastic shift in climate too.
Avatar n tn A break or crack in your skin can allow bacteria to invade your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> tissue, causing an infection. The nipple discharge may contain pus, and the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> can become <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span>, swollen and warm to the touch. Treatment involves surgically draining the abscess, and your doctor also may prescribe antibiotics. Changes in breast tissue (fibrocystic changes) Fibrocystic breast changes result in lumpy, tender breasts and can produce a clear, yellow or light green discharge from your nipples.
Avatar f tn HIV is present in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>milk</span> which can be dangerous for babies but there would be insufficient quantities of the virus to affect an adult. However the likelihood this woman had HIV in the first place is very very slim. Adding all the risks together your risk is probably greater than 1:1000000. On these odds I wouldn't bother getting tested however for peace of mind a HIV Duo test can be taken. As for your cold symptoms they sound like a run of the mill infection to me and not symptoms of HIV.
Avatar f tn This is due to many factors, including the quantity of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>milk</span> and the underdeveloped immune system of babies. For adults <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>milk</span> HIV transmission remains only a hypothetical risk. That risk would be dependent on the amount of virus in the infected milk, quantity ingested, presence of cuts or sores on the oral mucous membranes, etc. Overall the risk of an adult contracting HIV from nipple noshing would be extremely low.
Avatar n tn Dear Carol in Pittsburgh, inflammatory <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> Cancer (IBC) is a rare type of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> cancer accounts for only 1 to 4 percent of all <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> cancers. It is called inflammatory because the symptoms are usually a redness and warmth in the skin of the breast, often without a distinct lump. It can be mistaken for an infection and initially be treated with antibiotics. IBC would not get better on the antibiotics, and symptoms would be unlikely to resolve on their own within a day or two.
Avatar n tn Today I developed a lump in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> about an inch above <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> nipple. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> skin is slightly red in this area and the lump is painful. It cannot be seen with the naked eye but is just under the skin surface.
Avatar f tn after <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> boyfriend sucked <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> so hard that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> nipples became <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> i noticed the second day that their was some blood on my nipples and my breast hurts a little ! i'm kind of worried ! is it because he sucked it to hard ? or is their something wrong?
Avatar f tn Hi! Is it on top of your skin, or underneath? If you have questions, I'd contact your OB/GYNE and ask him/her to take a quick look.
1907180 tn?1329454377 Hot showers or warm compresses and massaging your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> that is blocked is what I was told when I had a blocked duct.
7172456 tn?1403096546 Hi ladies.. I stopped <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> feeding over a week ago and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> boobs are empty, they don't leak at all and look n feel empty.. Yesterday I woke up with a blocked duct on my right breast and it is getting more painful.. How do I get rid of it without nursing or pumping?
13782075 tn?1437965372 I wasn't making enough milk so I started supplementing when I had to but they have a formula that is actually like powdered <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>milk</span> it's for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> feeding moms and I only use it if I have to!
Avatar m tn I did the sex wearing condom but during the sex I did one mistake that I once sucked the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> partner. I felt some liquid (small amount) in <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> mouth but I don’t know weather it was milk or some other body fluids which came in my mouth. I immediately wiped (swabbed) the liquid on my shirt sleeve.
Avatar f tn / but <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> reasberry leaf tea is supposed to help better then the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>milk</span> tea, I'm trying everything lol and I use the pump a little more then breast feeding but I just went back to just breast feeding because I think it helps with my milk production as well
349463 tn?1333575176 Any suggestions or should I call <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> dr also do I call <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> ob or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> primary care provider? Ugh so frustrated any advice is appreciated!
823825 tn?1265075031 Well the other thing to dirnk is 16-20oz of water 20 min before your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>breast</span> feed. This helps your let down and makes more <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>milk</span>. I had to do that when <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> baby was in the NICU and I pumped every other feed. The oatmeal is a good thing too as other poster said. Fennel has been used for centuries but doea not has as god effect as the Fenugreek or mother's milk tea! The best resource with video's is to llook up Jack Newman who is the leading BF dr.
583196 tn?1429224755 Ya beer works. Obviously no more than 1.
Avatar m tn But in China and Japan they eat a lot of unfermented soy such as soy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>milk</span> and tofu. Soy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>milk</span> is just the liquid left over after making tofu. But there is a concern with soy -- it is a common allergen and most brands have a lot of sugar in them ( so does milk, by the way, though it's naturally there).
176135 tn?1314756238 I'm seriously thinking of renting a hospital grade pump to help clear it up, since <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> dd gets frustrated, abuses <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> nipple and probably is making things worse. I'm also going to start putting lanolin on after nursing to soften up the skin. Does this sound like a good plan? Any other recommendations? I'm off to take some Tylenol now; hopefully that will take the edge off the pain. Thanks for any help you can offer.
Avatar f tn At first, I thought the sore boob might be an early pregnancy sign but nope, I am certain now it is not and it is a hard lump. I don't think it is mastitis because I am not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>red</span> or feverish (and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>my</span> DD is now 8 months old and is breastfeeding well). I haven't been engorged or anything so I am not sure what has caused this, but is there anything I can do beyond nursing her frequently and having hot baths, showers, compresses?
