How do we proceed with a breast infection?

During the first session, we make an ultrasound to find out exactly where the blockage is. In just two or three sessions, we can clear it by means of ultrasound. It is not necessary to take antibiotics or painkillers, such as paracetamol. This treatment is safe, non-invasive, pain-free and completely natural.

How does a breast infection occur? 

A breast infection can have many causes. It usually occurs during the first month of breastfeeding. During this period, the breast is particularly susceptible to infection because your nipples can become damaged or even crack (cracked nipples). Stagnation of milk in the breast (stasis) can also be a culprit, leading to an inflamed mammary gland that can make you feel sick and break a fever. 

Milk stasis can occur when your baby does not empty the breast completely or when you feed less natural nutrition because your baby is also bottle-fed. As the periods between feeds are longer, congestion can occur.

In addition, stress and pain as well as a change in feeding rhythm can cause the milk to flow less freely. Thrush, a common ailment in babies, can also lead to mastitis. This fungal infection is caused by the yeast species candida albicans and may result in white spots in your baby's mouth, for example on the tongue. 

Often it is only one inflamed milk duct in the breast. If left untreated, however, the infection can spread to the entire breast. The duct system is very treatable, but it is important that you catch it quickly.
