Common Questions and Answers about Breast milk mastitis


4113227 tn?1353467394 has anyone suffered from mastitis while breastfeeding, if so did it occur again with the next baby?
9038886 tn?1402129326 this whole time I was thinking I didn't have enough milk supply. Does it always result in too much milk? I had a really high fever, and no there was no puss. I'll definitely do the shower thing. Thank you so much ladies! :) breastfeeding became really difficult.
Avatar m tn ultrasound showed debris in milk duct, had needle aspiration of the 'breast lesion' that came out benign - yea! Not all was drained. Because of family history (2 sisters battling BC now), having BRAC1 and BRAC2 test done next week. I have a rash that has broken out on same breast (rt.) that is not going away with 2.5% hydrocortisone ointment. My breast still has shooting pains and aches something awful. I think my immune system is compromised because I seem to go from cold to cold.
Avatar f tn Hi try taking probiotics as it reduces discomfort associated with breast pain and mastitis and reduce the recurrence of mastitis.
2026902 tn?1369101998 Well anyways since getting mastitis I had fever and chills for almost 3 days before going to urgent care but I noticed I'm hardly getting any milk esp from my left breast. I have not really been breastfeeding as it is too painful. Guess my question is why such decrease in milk and can I start making more milk? Daughter goes for weight check tm hoping she won't need formula but well see.
2020005 tn?1476662562 And if it does turn into mastitis, is the breast milk not good to feed my baby? I don't want to make her sick or anything. This was my BIGGEST fear breastfeeding, that or a clogged milk duct and I'm freaking out haha!
Avatar n tn and frequently. Always start w/ the infected breast because the baby will suck harder on which ever breast you offer first. Second, next time you feel a blockage I have a great position tip which worked for me since I was so prone to blocked ducts. Again start with the sore breast and lay your baby flat on his/her back on a bed. Lean over him so you are offering your breast to him from above and his face is towards the cealing sucking.
Avatar f tn I'm a nervous wreck about possibly getting mastitis. My left breast is harder than my right one. I'm not sure how you get this. Are there ways of preventing it? And is it even too soon to get it?
Avatar f tn How quickly can you develope mastitis? I woke up this morning with my right breast really swolken on the side extending under my armpit. I initially noticed it because when my son was nursing on that side i got sharp pains through the swelling. I thought that i might just have filled up a little too much on that side so i fed him from there for most of his feedings today. But its only getting more and more uncomfortable and now he wont latch to that side because of the swelling...
Avatar f tn My son was born three weeks ago and in that three weeks I have gotten mastitis twice so far I keep looking info up on the net on how to stop milk production but nothing on the net is seeming to help my right breast is so engorged to to point its not leaking or getting soft I've been trying to pump to relieve the pressure but its not working its very hard and sore to the touch what can I do?
Avatar f tn Has anyone had to deal with mastitis and or breast abscess? I had my baby last week and I've either got mastitis or breast abscesses AGAIN /: i was trying to pump but i can't deal with the pain anymore yet I'm scared to stop >< did anyone give up or stop breastfeeding/pumping? What was your outcome?
Avatar f tn Also ive always had tons of milk ever aince my milk came in. Way more than my baby needed. So i soak through a nursing pad in couple hours and ive had problems with engorgment too.
Avatar f tn they can give you something to help dry up your milk , I know along time ago they use to bind your breast (not recommended) home remedies include Cabbage leaves (cool) , Drink sage tea, Take vitamin B6. Avoid nipple stimulation, as this will trigger milk production. Other ideas: start wearing the tightest sports bra you can , When you shower, face away from the stream: hot water will induce milk supply.
Avatar f tn thiss situation can affect problems in the future breast development? have newborne mastitis any relation with cancer breast. please help me to be calm.
1123420 tn?1350564758 I really want my baby to have breast milk for the first month or so, but really can't imagine actually breast feeding, so I was thinking about just pumping it.. I don't know the first thing about it. So is that any different, does it break the bond? Does it hurt any less? I have absolutely no idea, so if you could help me with these questions, or let me know other things that I need to know, I'd really appreciate it. Thank you!!
9924471 tn?1419958020 My dr gave me antibiotics on the 7th of april and it is a ten day antibiotic, just wondering if anyone knows typically when the milk supply in that breast will return to normal? Thanks mamas!!!
Avatar f tn Dont face the shower or it will loosen that milk up. Also if it gets real bad you can self express a little milk to relieve the pressure every now and then.
Avatar f tn I've taken a warm bath and pumped right after and I hardly get any milk from the infected breast. Now it feels like it's getting bigger and every little thing I do hurts. Why isn't the lump getting smaller what can I do about it? And how long will these flu symptoms last? Help please it hurts so bad! !
Avatar f tn Hi, Granulomatous mastitis is a benign inflammatory breast disease of unknown origin that usually affects young women of childbearing age. The recommended treatment for granulomatous mastitis is complete resection or open biopsy with corticosteroid therapy. The chances of recurrence are high and so a regular follow up is essential. Let us know if you have any other doubts or if you need any other information and keep us posted on how you are doing.
Avatar n tn Everything I've read on the internet about mastitis talks about feeding or pumping quite often to keep the milk in the infected breast flowing, which healps with the healing. I pump. Everytime I've pumped today, the milk from the infected breast has been decreasing. I started taking a hot bath right before pumping to increase milk flow and that's not even helping. At my last pumping I got out maybe 1-2 cc's. What exactly does this mean?
Avatar f tn I was wondering about storage...How long can breast milk be stored on the counter? in the fridge? in the freezer? How long is it good for once it has been thawed? I honestly can't remember from a few years back..Thanks to all, and I hope all the Dec. Mommies/babies are well, and for those left to go, hang in there, your babies will be in your arms before you know it!
Avatar f tn Hi Everyone, Recently diagnosed with GM/IGM in left breast. I am 48 yrs old with two children ages 12 & 14. Became ill March 08, 2011 with a Mastitis Infection, my 1st treatment was Augmentin 875mg 2x daily for ten days. Felt major relief immediately the day after taking Augmentin. At my follow-up the doctor thought that my mastitis still had nodes inflamed but would take time to heal. No additional medicine prescribed.
Avatar n tn I suffered from mastitis on the inner side of my right breast, against the chest wall away from the nipple, after the birth of my daughter. The infection went on for three weeks because my midwife kept saying 'you're fine, you're fine. hot water, massages, and breastfeeding will get it out with antibiotics.' After starting the antibiotics, the fever stopped, but the redness, pain, and swelling did not.
Avatar f tn I would think the Augmentin would take care of it but it sounds like you need a different med. I hope you feel better soon!!! Do as nannie says too and try to get the milk out of that breast or it'll get engorged.
Avatar f tn would those symptoms go away with IBC and Paget, or was it some sort of mastitis? My grandmother died of cancer and my mom and her sister had very bad mastitis. That's why i probably freak out, but doctors seem not care at all! I would appreciate any comments and suggestions.
Avatar f tn There is a great breastfeeding group on here that can help. The antibiotics will help. Try putting raw cabbage leaves on your breast as well. That will help the pain. Stay hydrated as well.
Avatar f tn In my 7 months of breastfeeding my baby, I went to the doctor twice because my breasts became tender and whenever breast milk comes out, my breast felt sore. The first time I went to the doctor, she gave me antibiotics and my breasts became normal. 2 weeks ago, I felt that my breast is painful again. I went to the doctor and gave me antibiotics again. And now, I feel it again. I can also feel some lumps and my right boob is painful again. Could this be mastitis or a more serious condition?
646779 tn?1281999641 other is fine; Pain when removing milk, that becomes a little less painful when breast is close to empty; Don't think I have a clog as I've had one before and this is different - i don't detect a lump, but am apprehensive to prod too much as it hurts to do so; I am tired and drained as I express at 3 am, always seem to get to bed late, and am up early taking kids to school. I would say I average 5 hours sleep a day. I wonder if I have brought this on myself.
171768 tn?1324233699 i took a hot shower and massaged, and did get more of a let-down and it became softer, but the area was still sore. also, for the past 2 days, that breast has been producing less milk than the other. i hopped online and looked up clogged milk ducts. every site advised taking it easy and spending the day in bed. not very easy when you're home alone all day with an infant!! anyways, i started to feel worse, and took my temp. it's 100.7. every website says to see a dr if it's over 101.
