Re: Is it mastitis??

I had mastitis that started like a clogged duct like that. I did have to go on anitbiotics for it. But if you don't have a doctor or insurance, you might want to try the cabbage leaf thing first together with the warm compresses and massage. You just buy regular cabbage and bruise a few leaves all over (I banged them all over with a spoon) and then tuck a leaf inside each cup of your bra, so the leaves cup your breasts. The chemicals inside the cabbage leaves are astringent and will help to draw out the clog. You might be able to nip it in the bud, especially if you pump and drink a lot of fluids.
