Mom in need of guidance

by Ashley

I found a lump in my breast and had an ultrasound. The doctor said it is clogged milk ducts but I have not nursed in over 2 years.

It really hurts but he said it will go away. I do not have health insurance so going back in is not really an option.

It's been 6 months since the ultrasound and it seems to be really hurting these last 5 days. Any advise. Everything I read is about people after a month not 2 1/2 years!

Blocked sore milk ducts
by: Lezel

It's been nine years for me. What I can remember well is the pain and discomfort associated with a blocked milk duct. I am so sorry to hear that you are going through this.

Here are some home remedies that might help you.

Garlic - natural pain relief and anti-inflammatory properties. Chew raw.

Take lots of vitamin C capsules and eat foods high in Vic C to help prevent infection. If you notice any signs of fever, get help immediately.

Get lots of sleep. Stress can help cause the blockage.

Massage often after every compress and bath/shower. From breast to nipple area. Do as often as you can.

Keep doing the above as often as you can until you get the relief you need.

It is cheaper to go the home remedy route since you mention you don't have medical assistance, but if it doesn't get better soon with above remedies, please seek professional guidance.

Good luck!!
