Re: Plugged duct
My MW has a protocol for plugged ducts:
Drink lots of water
Take echinacea drops 5xs/ day, 4xs/ day, 3xs/day, etc.
Take emergen-c 3xs/day
Hot showers/baths and massage breasts
Grate raw potatoes and press it against your skin in the inflamed area- weird, but it acts as a poultice
Rest a lot
Keep nursing on that side
Worked for me when I had a plugged duct in the second week of nursing. Keeps the mastitis away. Hope things get better soon!
