breast

Avatar f tn I'm 18 I'm pregnant with my first(: but I'm considering breast feeding, any pros and cons with it?
Avatar f tn no cow's milk before age one, whole milk until age two, low fat or non-fat milk after that. Once baby is weaned from the breast, 24 ounces of cow's milk or goat's milk a day is plenty. There are two reasons why the Committee on Nutrition of the American Academy of Pediatrics discourages the use of cow's milk under one year of age: allergies and iron- deficiency anemia. The intestinal lining is slower to mature in some babies than others.
Avatar n tn Hi there. For breast feeding women, it is very common to have irritations in the breast-nipple area caused by some form of trauma during breast feeding. However, I suggest you show this to your doctor for proper assessment. Other causes would include fungal infection or allergic, and contact dermatitis. Fungal infections can be diagnosed with a KOH smear and can be treated with topical antifungals.
551454 tn?1276785884 I have a rash on my right breast just about 3 fingers under the nipple and it is about 4 fingers long with 2 clogged pores in it. It is sore but not warm to the touch. has any one else had this problem.
Avatar f tn he told me that its probably due to pregnancy and breast feeding. he checked my neck and around the left breast and knee lymph nodes(ultrasound) and he told me they aren't enlarged.he put me on MELOXICAM 15 mg, B6 B12 B1 supplements and CIFIXIME 400mg. i started to notice that my whole left side joints seems to be a bit swelled. i need to know should i go to another doc.? and what specialty should he be? or should i just wait and see? any respond will be highly appreciated.
Avatar m tn Hi, Your underarm swelling could be a blocked milk duct due to breast feeding. Applying warm compresses and gently massaging the area should help unblock it.However,if this swelling persists,it could also be due to infection or inflammation.Since swelling in the armpit can be either a minor inconvenience or a serious concern, it is important to receive a diagnosis from a medical doctor.Anything that disrupts the normal cycle of the lymph glands and the immune system requires a close look.
Avatar n tn There is a form of breast cancer called Paget's disease of the nipple than can cause a rash. Recently breast feeding makes it even more likely it's innocent. But nothing beats a direct look at it.
Avatar m tn there is no redness, my boobs are no more pitted than they have been since i stopped breast feeding 3 years ago, there is no bruising. my right breast is a bit bigger than the left (though this does not look abnormal) but the warmth comes and goes and my glands in my neck and armpits continue to play up. My question is this: if you have IBC would the warmth come and go???
Avatar f tn I was thinking it may be the formula cuz in the hospital she didn't poop every time and I was breast feeding at the hospital for the 2 days we were there.
Avatar n tn I did have a lil trouble sleeping but I thought it was due to breast feeding and getting up every couple of hours. Anyway its only recentley that the rash has spread to my shins hands arm and bottom its looking a mess and also lost atound 16 pounds of weight in last 3 months,,my heart also races.. Im wondering if my thyroid has been slightly over active a while but maybe just got higher latley for me to lose weight.
Avatar n tn HELLO EVERYONE, RECENTLY IT WAS BROUGHT TO MY ATTENTION THAT THERE IS A BODY ODOR LIKE SMELL WHICH IS COMING FROM MY BREAST. I DO HAVE A BIGGER CHEST, BUT I AM VERY CLEAN NONE THE LESS. I ASSUMED THAT THIS ODOR MAY BE PRESENT DUE THE FACT THAT IT IS THE SUMMER AND I TEND TO SWEAT MORE, BUT I NOTICED IT AGAIN ON FRIDAY AT WORK AND MY BODY WAS COMPLETELY DRY. I HAD TWO OF MY FRIENDS AT WORK, ONE MY BOSS, SMELL THE AREA AND THEY CONFIRMED. MY QUESTIONS ARE: 1.
Avatar n tn My skin is sore to touch, and has become tough and dry. As I am presently breast feeding this is causing extreme discomfort. Can I take anti-histamine or treatments while I am breast feeding.
Avatar f tn Although I stil have pain and itching on and around my rash, I'm really concerned about the pain in my breast and nipple. They are so over stimulated, for hours at a time, that it feels like my nipple might pop off, no jokes! Being cold at all is terrible. I know shingles attckes the nerves but should I be concerned about wanting to breastfeed in the future?
Avatar f tn //www.wikihow.com/Increase-Breast-Milk-Production My daughter-in-law has breastfed all her babies (she has 5 children). But the last child who is 1.5 years of age got a dreadful rash and severe diarrhea soon after being breast fed. The midwife advised my daughter-in-law to avoid all dairy produce and food containing lactose. The baby is lactose intolerant. Lactose is milk sugar. This is one example how what a mother eats or drinks does get transmitted through the breast milk into the baby.
631676 tn?1333721803 If you don't think it's that I would check your baby's latch and make sure it's still good with a decent amount of breast getting in their mouth. It's also possible you are getting chapped and you could try putting lanolin or coconut oil on your nipples and letting them air dry. Or it could be a yeast infection on your nipples too. If you were to have a yeast infection (thrush) baby would also have it and you would see white stuff in the mouth that doesn't wipe off.

Avatar f tn Is it possible thst shes allergic to the diapers ur using or the powder u are using?? If not i use something called Aquaphor. You can purchase it at walmart for a few bucks and apply it to her rash every diaper change. It may be less harsh on her and helped my sons rash clear up very quickly.
Avatar f tn I had a really hard time breast feeding my first set of twins, and then my third did pretty well with it and my second set of twins were the best and easiest of all of them to nurse. I guess it just goes to show that each child can really be different. Hang in there, it will get better.
Avatar f tn I had the same problem after giving birth...itchy rash all over thighs/groin. I found out it was jock itch..weird.
175662 tn?1282217256 That, or I was purposely trying to always coat him with diaper rash cream to prevent diaper rash, and I actually caused it by not allowing his skin to breathe. It started out small, and I just kept applying more and more cream, but it got worse and worse. I tried EVERY cream I could find-- did the Lotrimin, left him go diaper-less, etc. Nothing worked. Then a friend of mine suggested plain, 100% natural Emu Oil!
Avatar f tn She went into surgery for about 45 mins, came out, went home and that was the end of it. Both my sisters now have breast tissue under their underarms and both hate the way it looks. They both had it checked out and the doc told them it was harmless. One sister though has been complaining that it hurts her when she is close to getting her AF so shes going back to the doc to possibly have it removed.
Avatar f tn breast milk is the best for the baby. but dr do tell breast feeding mommys that giving the baby formula once in a while good because our milk dont have vitamin d. but other then that breast feeding the firsg best answer to feeding your baby. on the pluz side scientist discovered if a mommy breast feeds for a year she will lose 32 pounds I. total.
Avatar n tn My Wife has been breast feeding and doing well until day 4. The burping thing is not an issue we're getting good burps between breast, however she is still vomiting. We spent the last 24 hours in the ER, just to have them tell us, don't feed her as much. ( are you kidding me)?!?! We only feed about 5-10 maybe alittle more depending upon how much she wants it.. Then we called her doctor the next morning and she said to feed her more?
Avatar n tn I don't think breast feeding is an issue either way. But first, you need a firm diagnosis, so a skin consultation seems like your best bet. Congratulations on your new baby. Dr.
127529 tn?1331844380 So I have now weaned Sam from the breast completely this week; he was biting so hard it I was bleeding, time to give up! So I have now got him on Enfamil lower iron formula, he has had 1 or 2 feeding a day of this formula for a month or so now without issue.
290867 tn?1333572878 if you're breast feeding this is what is probably giving your little guy his rash. and the constant wiping of his skin from poopy diapers make his skin raw. Like the poster earlier said change the diaper every hour to hour and a half and if he poopy's dont use wipes use water to cleanse and use your hands to wash away the poop. and make sure to use cream or vasaline everytime but before you put the diaper, make sure the area is completely dry.
Avatar f tn For example a baby has a 14% increased chance of catching HIV from an infected mother and thats only after 6 months of breast feeding or more. Most babies born to HIV mothers catch the desease during birth as they are exposed to the vigina. The symptoms you exhibited would have came on way to strong for it to be HIV.
Avatar n tn Are you breast feeding??...it could very well be a rash from her face resting against you as she feeds...I don't know that I would use a damp cloth on it....as that seems that it would encourage the skin to become more irritated from water drying on her face...
