Mastitis- Helpful tips?

I was diagnosed with Mastitis today. Worse pain I have ever experienced. Any helpful tips for relieving clogged ducts? Currently have tried warm bath and releasing milk in tub, sunflower lecithin, and Poke Root.

Get your boyfriend/husband to suck it out, or feed the baby with them on their back, and you on your hands and knees. Sounds weird but either should work.

Wet cloths in the freezer on my boobs, I puMped all day and went into the hot shower and milked myself. I’d get my partner to massage one aside while I massage the other while pumping n

Cabbage leaves directly on your breasts. Warmest shower you can handle while massaging it out. Good luck mama💗

My grandma would buy me a head of cabbage lol I would tear off a few whole leaves & they cupped my breast perfectly under my nursing bra. It was amazing, so the stink was not gonna keep me from doing it (: plus then as soon as I could get an antibiotic from doc, together I would start feeling better almost immediately (: It helped to drink one heavy on the hops beer, like Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Going forward I kept a timer & journal so I wouldn’t get distracted & nurse more on one side(10 min each side) & rotate sides at the beginning of each feed & spaced exactly 2 hours apart. Sometimes they had to cry & rock till that 2 hour mark. La Leche League seriously helped me.

Hippy advice here. Took 3 rounds of antibiotics and I still had mastitis. Found an herbalist and she had me buy a tincture called happy ducts and take the full dose. We put pure castor oil on the infected breast then a wool flannel cloth over that, wrapped it in suran wrap and put a heat pad over that. This pulled the infection out. It worked after only a few days where antibiotics had failed. She also had me stop ✋doing my daily life and STAY in BED! Bc your body needs to rest.
