Re: Mastitis

I had it in both breasts recently... nurse nurse nurse and nurse some more! That's really the only thing that helps best - getting the infection out of there. The longer the sweet milk hangs around... the worse it can be. Take any immune system boosters you have too (echinacea, goldenseal) if you can. Hope it improves, that's rough!!
