Re: I have mastitis!!!

I've had it three times and I think eating raw garlic really helps! I ate maybe 5 cloves in one day--washing it down with orange juice or soda helps. Also, there is a homeopathic remedy called phytolacca that should be available at your health food store. Also, lechitin is good if there is a clog causing the mastitis. But if you are still not feeling better in a couple days--make sure you get the antibiotic because untreated mastitis can turn into a breast abscess.

(There is some great info on mastitis at

Re: I have mastitis!!!

Just wanted to let you all know that my mastitis is non-existent now! I continued my home remedies as listed in the first post and by last night, I had virtually no pain in my right breast.

I smell like pesto, but hey... I am healed!

Thanks everyone for their suggestions!
