Re: 4th Bout of Mastitis
I am so sorry you have been battling this recurring mastitis and I am sorry you are not getting relief.
There is something else going on, and it may not be starting in your breasts.
But suffering with this many bouts of mastitis is no good for you.
Some mothers crawl back into bed and stay there , waited on hand and foot by a loving grandma, mother in law, sister or aunt.
Some mothers change their bras to a soft comfort light support rather than a tight holder.
Some mothers forgo antibiotics altogether and tough it out, but they are very cognizant of taking good care of themselves and resting, not doing any chores or errands.
some mothers burn high fevers and stay away from fever reducers in order to fight off the infection, other moms end up vomiting and then feeling better.
Do you have an unfilled tooth cavity? Bad gums? Sinus problems?
I am grabbing at straws here but it is NOT NORMAL to keep getting mastitis.
