Breast milk eye infection

Common Questions and Answers about Breast milk eye infection


689528 tn?1364139441 Just wondering how you would know if you had an infection in your breast?! The last 2 days I've had a bit of pain in my left breast. It's more of a dull pain that's deeper in the tissue and when he feeds it hurts a little. Not sure what's going on or what it could be. My other breast is fine. My left one is always slightly larger too so I don't know if I'd be able to tell if it was swollen. I woke up this am and was quite full and it was definitely more painful then too! Any suggestions?
8550901 tn?1400744290 I have the same issue with my little one... she keeps getting an eye infection and I was doing breast milk in the eye a few times a day for a couple of days... it helps clear it up but it's a reoccurring thing... took her to the doctor and she has clogged tear ducts... they gave me antibiotic eye drops to use for a few days and it has a refill... He said it happens a lot with newborns since their tear ducts haven't opened all the way and arent able to drain properly...
127529 tn?1331844380 If not I think you should go to the walk in clinic. I waited too long with pain in my breast and ended up with a full blown mastitis infection both breasts and a high fever. I was on antibiotics so then I had to pump and dump instead of just try to nurse to unclog the duct.
4715985 tn?1371586597 Sinus, ear, and eye infectionsIf you or your child has a sinus, ear, or eye infection, a few drops of breastmilk will work wonders in clearing it up. Breastmilk has natural antibodies which kill infection without the harmful side effects of synthetic antibiotics, and can be administered as often as necessary without risk of overdose.Makeup removalBreastmilk can be used in place of cold cream to remove makeup and soften skin. Simply rub onto skin and rinse clean.
Avatar f tn If you are NOT pregnant--the source of your breast milk leakage/buildup is probably an imbalance of a certain hormone, I think prolactin? Anyway, a blood test could detect that immediately! You also sound as though you may be anemic (deficiency in iron) which is causing your low energy and fatigue. This could also be helped by taking iron supplements. You should get a complete physical and bloodwork.
Avatar f tn Has anyone else ever had a blocked milk duct when breastfeeding? I am in agony. 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 red or feverish (and my DD is now 8 months old and is breastfeeding well).
Avatar f tn My new born had that and I will put breast milk in a q-tip and I will clean his whole eye around it though not inside the eye and it when away breast milk does miracles
Avatar n tn She does need to be seen by a vet because if she develops an infection, it can affect her milk and make it impossible for her puppies to nurse, which is going to leave you hand-rearing two puppies with a bottle. Call a vet first thing in the morning and get her in there tomorrow.
280369 tn?1316705641 Did you have antibiotics prior to giving birth? You could have a yeast infection IN you milk ducts...I did and the breast pain was excrutiating! BUT it went undiagnosed for almost 2m because I didn't show any signs on my nipples... Your chills etc sound mastitis-ish though... Maybe a day of rest will help BUT if your breasts keep hurting, see a dr... read this and see if it seems like your symptoms...
121807 tn?1200972954 Breast Milk, beast milk, breast milk, it's the best think for a baby's eye infection. I promise!
Avatar f tn You really can't compare the two, there are so many nutrients in breast milk. Formula companies can't even come close to creating anything that can compare.
Avatar n tn Even if I put a clean bra, in a few hours it will be smelling strong. Sometimes the smell reminds me of dry breast milk. Like the smell of your bra when you are breastfiding and some milk drips and you do not have a chance to change it within the next few hours. This smell started about 5 yearws ago, probably in the beginging of my pre-menopause.
1464587 tn?1307495205 Too many people who are having sex are coming here and thinking it it HIV or some other common std but tests prove otherwise. Scientists are finding it in all bodily fluids, semen, vainal fluids, breast milk, saliva etc.
Avatar f tn But now I have this burning feeling in my breast and read that it could be a yeast infection. It just started yesterday and today I decided to stop feeding him by my breast and just pump. I'm boiling all bottle and pump supplies for 20min. Do I need to see a doctor or can I get rid of it on my own since it just started? Or is it something else and I'm just freaking out?
1194973 tn?1385507504 I'm worried that if I leave the milk in there it will cause blocked ducts and I'll get some sort of infection, and I seriously can't afford to be ill again right now.
Avatar n tn Its not itching around the nipple but the actual nipple where there breast milk is suppose to come out. Could i b pregnant?
8537342 tn?1403345583 It helps you bond with the baby and boosts their immune system. Also, breast milk has alot more vitamins the baby needs. It's all natural and really healthy! That's just my choice. Some women can't breastfeed so they don't have an option. I, personally, feel like it's the right thing to do for my baby. But everyone has a different opinion on it.
Avatar n tn Husband complains that breast fluid tastes bad. What can cause this and how can I stop it? I know this sounds gross, but it really embarrasses me to have him think I taste bad. I am not nursing and I am sure it is normal breast fluid, but haven't ever heard of anybody else having this problem.
Avatar n tn After reading Carmen42 comments above, I thought this bit of info would be of interest. As you have said her eye problems wouldn't be associated with the breast discharge. However after reading this I thought perhaps the two are connected. Lots of things going wrong with your brain can effect your eyes. Several disorders can cause an abnormal discharge. Abnormal discharges vary in appearance depending on the cause.
Avatar n tn HELP! For the past two years I have been getting painful recurring face infection (boil) on different parts of my face (my chin, above eye, on rim of ear, on skin just in front of earlobe... anywhere. I feel one coming on and I call in a perscription for Dicloxacillin 500 mg and take 4 a day (28 pills). It goes away and I am fine for 3 to 4 months and I get another one different place. The Dr.
Avatar n tn 2) What is the possibility of HIV infection with sucking breast and licking a break without milk.(Is there any possibility of some other fluids from the breast?) 3) If there is any(even small) risk, How many days I should wait for the HIV Test? 4) Should I opt for a PEP? What is the side effect of PEP? If I go for it? I am so tensed and waiting for the asnwer. Thanks for your response.
Avatar n tn My question is this. Does the multiple site sampling change the odds that I have breast cancer?
Avatar n tn I have similar problems, but the lump and the pain feels like it is just underneath my left breast. I went to the breast clinic, and they did a breast examination, and determined that I do not have breast cancer. For some reason, I don't believe the doctor. I have had this pain for many months now, and would really like to know what it is. My left breast has one spot, on the side under my armpit where it hurts.
Avatar n tn I have muscle spasm in or around the ribs on both sides (in the front under the breast and sometimes in the back at the same horizontal position), it feels like a ball rolling, in that it switches sides. It occurs even at night during sleep, painful enough to wake me. I only know that when I relax and stretch (the side where the knot is) using several positions I have to wait till it goes away, in many cases to have it return in other places described above.
Avatar n tn Hi, 9 weeks ago, I had a hand job by a sex worker of completely unknown HIV/IDU status who squirted a few mLs of breast secretions (milk?) directly onto my penis. This was my only risk factor. The next day, I had a sore throat which persisted for 20 days. It did not change in character over the time period. About 10 days after the episode, my appetite was severly reduced, mostly in the morning.
Avatar f tn Hi. Since April I have had pain above my left breast. It's not constantly there, but it comes and goes. Sometimes it feels like a burning pain, other times it feels like a cramp. I've also felt it in my armpit at times and it will also creep up over my shoulder. Although I VERY RARELY feel it on the right side, it DOES happen once in awhile. But for the most part it's been my left side.
