Re: yeast infection and reocuring blocked ducts
Oh my goodness! a blocked duct for 4 weeks sounds so troublesome.
what have you been doing to try to clear the plug?
position changes? Wire free bra? massage? nursing more often and nursing on the plugged side more often?
My heart goes out to you. And now you have a yeast infection on top of it all.
sometimes there is an underlying cause creating a plug, and a possible vehicle for yeast infection.
Did you ever suffer an injury to your breast, underarm or chest muscles? Any past surgeries?
do you have sinus problems, chronic infections?
are you keeping all lotions and products away from your nipples, just fresh air and sunlight?
could you possibly have a gum /tooth infection?
i am going down the list of possible causes for plugs and yeast.
I wish i could help you find the culprit and conquer this obstacle once and for all.
