Mastitis is a painful condition occurring among breast-feeding mothers and can be treated in a number of different ways. Many of these methods are preventative or provide easy relief of the symptoms. Consult your doctor or midwife as to the proper feeding methods for your child. Ensure that your child is properly positioned and attached and even try different positions to see which is most efficient. Applying warm water to your breast to soften it can help with feeding as well as gentle stroking with a hair comb around the nipple. Try feeding your child more often and feed from the rest was in the status first so as to help with the training process. Speak to your doctor about painkillers, in particular paracetamol. Aspirin is generally not an advisable treatment. Drink more water and get more sleep. Carefully squeeze out any excess milk that remains in your breasts after feeding. Wearing loser fitting clothing and forgoing a brassiere can also help with symptoms of pain.
If your doctor diagnoses you with infectious mastitis then please consult with him as to the proper use of antibiotics as a treatment. As with any medication and medical treatments it is essential that you speak to your doctor before taking this and only using it after getting a proper prescription.
