Re: Need help!! Mastitis & Yeast Infections :(

I battled both Mastitis and yeast in both breasts at the same time for 17 weeks. It took me being on antibiotics (10 days) and 150mg's of Diflucan daily for THREE weeks to finally kick the infections out. My lactation consultant did warn me that reoccurrance of Mastitis is common, and when I needed to treat the Mastitis that I would also always need to ask for Diflucan as well. I will say, as a PP said before, that taking a probiotic did help, as did Jack Neuman's nipple cream (made only at a compound pharmacy.).

I'm so sorry that you are struggling with these infections! Stay strong, there is a light at the end of your tunnel!
