    A lactation told me not long after having DD3 that they now recommend doing all of the above, massage the lump, express/feed, heat and then taking Panadol and especially neurofen and going to bed then repeat. I'm not sure how well this works but the theory was clear the blockage and reduce the inflammation before the infection sets in. I hope you can get rid of it successfully!

    Silly question but do I use the bristles or the handle of the toothbrush on the lump?
    Thanks so so much for all your help

    I have not read all the replies. I got mastitis with both bubs. This time while having ultrasound physio, the physio said an electric toothbrush on the lump just before feeding works like the ultrasound. I tried it and it worked brilliantly! I just used a cheapo.
