689528 tn?1364135841 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!
8550901 tn?1400740690 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...
Avatar f tn s okay to nurse give milk from the infected breast because the infection is not in the milk but the duct tissue itself.
Avatar f tn BABY 1 MONTH HAS AN EYE INFECTION HAD IT FOR A MONTH DOCTOR GAVE ME MEDS FOR HIM BUT WANTED TO WAIT AND SEE IF IT WILL GO AWAY ON ITS OWN AND WANT A NATURAL CURE FOR HIM. HIS EYE GETS THIS YELLOW DISCHARGE AND IT COMES WHEN HE CRYS OR SLEEP. SOMETIMES ITS NOT YELLOW IT CLEAR SOMETIMES. I JUST DONT WANT THE OITMENT TO BURN AND HURT HIS EYE. THATS THE ONLY PROBLEM IVE HAD HE WAS BORN WITH IT.
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.
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 Actually it helps with acne, type of eye infection a drop or two will help, there are a few things breast milk can help with.
Avatar f tn Your breast milk makes antibodies to protect baby. Its not going to hurt the baby to breast feed while sick.
Avatar m tn would saliva/kissing or breast milk from an HIV-positive person can spread HIV infection via that root canal infection in an hiv negative person? There are lot of websites which tell that HIV dont spread through saliva and also breast milk needs to be in large quantity to cause hiv in adult. But considering my case about the root canal, I would like to know the answer. This particular thought is terrifying me a lot. I have lot my stability. I am not able to concentrate on my work.
6692462 tn?1409257870 Guys are so funny, aren't they?!?! Gotta love 'em. The only thing I would look out for is in your later 3rd trimester (about 33+ weeks), nipple simulation and breast feeding can bring on labor. So, I'd hold him off during that time until you are 40 weeks or so.. But yeah, as long as you are comfortable with it, there is no problem with that..
Avatar n tn Putting breast milk in the eye is great solution. My son's conjunctivitis cleared up within 24 hours of dropping milk into it.
Avatar f tn re supposedly an infection going around in womens breasts making the breast milk unhealthy for the baby has anyone else heard that rumor cuz I plan on breastfeeding my son
Avatar n tn I too was getting a lapdance in a strip club, and the stripper squeezed her breast and a single drop of breast milk came out. I then put her nipple my mouth; however, I had a canker sore at the time. I read the response found within the link above, but how does the risk of possible HIV infection change with a canker sore. I know that Dr. Hook stated that, statistically, most exotic dancers are not HIV infected.
Avatar f tn ve heard of breast milk being used for pink eye (yes squirt it in your eye every couple of hours), runny noses (squirt it up the nose and suck out the excess), diaper rash etc.
Avatar f tn If helps your baby not get sick the first few weeks and also breast milk can heal an eye infection if the baby gets one you can put some in its eye. Your nipples absorb the babys saliva, so if baby gets sick you will make antibodies in your milk to make it better.
Avatar f tn Yep my moms said the same same about the breast milk in the eye!!
Avatar f tn I agree its highly unlikely that its your milk as your milk cant go off, I'm wondering if it maybe his cord and when your feeding you may be getting little wifs of it, sometimes they can get a little smelly, they dont necessarily have an infection but they can smell abit off
Avatar n tn Keep an eye on it. If it starts to get hot or red you could have mastitis(breast infection)which you would need antibiotics for.
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?
Avatar f tn I copied and pasted a little article I just found after posting. I wanted to make sure I was right about the reasons bottles cause ear infections (which is by laying a baby down for feedings via bottle or propping) This article explains a little better. I hope it helps. Give your lil one a big smooch for me and I hope he starts feeling better soon. "There is also an old-wives-tale that says a baby will get ear infections if the baby is breastfed whilst lying down.
280369 tn?1316702041 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...
Avatar f tn By any chance, are you breast feeding her? Producing good milk? If so, squirt some breast milk in her eye.. your milk has natural antibodies to fight off the pink eye.. And if not, take her to her pediatrician and they'll give her antibiotics. Constantly wash your hands well. Feces particles are constantly in the air, and you'll carry them on your hands after every diaper change, so wash up well! Warm compresses of a warm towel on her eye while she sleeps will help as well.
