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.

Raw xabbage leaf for no more than 40 min does wonders for me. Be careful not to leave it for too long since it decreases breast milk production..at least thats whats said. But in my experience is the most effective against mastitis

Your spouse can help you. That’s what my lactation consultant told me. She said that your spouse can create the same motion as your baby but get more suction. Lol it helped me. As well as using a warm cloth while I pumped and managed my breast. Sometimes it takes all three things to get it unclogged. Not to mention that if your man is sucking away it tells your body to produce more milk.
