Breast Milk Is Like Mucus After Not Breastfeeding For A Long Time?
Afternoon. I want to ask, my child is no longer breastfed, so I tried to express the breast milk, how come the milk looks like mucus, can it be consumed? what do I have to do? Thanks
Thanks for the question. How long has it been since your child stopped breastfeeding? Have you had any other complaints? Fluid like mucus that comes out of the nipples can be caused by:
blockage of the mammary glands, mastitis, or infection of the breast tissue, breast abscess, before using these fluids, it is necessary to determine whether the fluid is thickened breast milk or other fluids. You should consult a doctor first, especially if you also experience pain in the breast, a lump in the breast, redness of the breast skin, or have a fever. Doctors need to do an examination to determine the cause. If further treatment is needed, the doctor will give it after examining you. In the meantime keep both breasts clean and dry. You can wipe the liquid that comes out with a clean towel or cloth.
I hope this helps.
