Re: I gave up
Yes, what Andrea said. I'm also a recurring plug/infection sufferer. I wold be thrilled to take antibiotics if it meant this would be over (I normally try to avoid like you, but hey, bacterial infections are why they're around). Have they checked for that? I think it's just a culture of the milk.
Big hug. I've had about 20 plugs/infections over 4 years and they are clustering closer together now. I can relate.
