    Default Recurrent Blocked milk ducts.

    Just wondering if any of you have experienced this and how you corrected it?

    I have had reccurent blocked ducts,with a white spot on my nipple now for the last 2years.When I was feeding my DD I was able to lance and massage the spot.She weaned over 5 months ago and I am still making colostrum.The spot is now the size of a pea and a recent mammogram showed all was reasonably healthy.They want to surgically remove it but I have convinced the DR to try Ultrasound (thanks google for the suggestion).Have you tried it and did it work?
    Thanks!

    Cabbage leaves?

    I have had ultra sound done as i had mastitis while pregnant. Ended up having it 'surgically removed' which was a case of numbing it (ouch) and sticking a big needle in to suck it all out. And some strong IV antibiotics.

    Have you been on antibiotics? Did they not help?

    Cabbage leaves is scientifically proven to help clear and ease pain of blocked ducts, a google search should bring up some info. Put them in the freezer ( the outer green leaves are best) place them in your bra and remove when they get hot. They will mould to your breast and you will smell funny, but they always have helped me.

    I've had ultrasound treatment at least a dozen times on blocked ducts. For the first few months of BF, I was averaging 2-3 blocked ducts a week. If I couldn't clear the duct myself (massage, hot shower, frequent feeding), then I would go to the dr's clinic & get ultrasound done. Once I had it done, I would go back home & DD would be able to clear it with the next feed.
    I've got no idea how you would go having ultrasound done if you're not currently breastfeeding. From what I know, all it does is actually "break-up" the blockage, but then you still need to either feed/express afterwards to remove it.
