Oh poor you, mastitis really hurts!! I had it once with DD2, and a friend told me to get some homeopathic drops, and as soon as I feel it coming on to take a couple of drops and it would not go on to develop into full blown mastitis. Well I don't mind telling you how sceptical I was, I mean, really, homeopathic stuff doesn't work...does it...???? Well I was in so much pain (and bub was not appreciating the antibiotics either, I decided I had nothing to lose, got a bottle... and guess what...?! It cleared up in no time, I could enjoy feeding my girl again - AND when ever I felt it coming on again, I took 2 drops (literally, that is all) and never got it again. Apparently once you have had it once, you are susceptible to get it again for as long as you are feeding that bub.(Sorry, you prob don't want to hear that!!)
Anyway, if you are interested to know what the drops were called I can easily find the bottle and let you know!!
hope you are feeling LOTS better sooooooooon! smile
