Breast Pain In Nursing Mothers?
I have a 2-year-old child, my child is breastfeeding my breast just next door … What I want to ask, is it normal if after I breastfeed my child for a rather long time my breast the next day feels painful and hot and cold? Thank you before his…
Thank you for your question.
Asi is the best nutrition for children. And has a natural birth control function if breastfeeding is done adequately and routinely. But there are some cases, if the breastfeeding mother is inadequate or only part of one breast, it will cause a disease in which is mastitis or inflammation of the Asi-producing glands.
Mastitis itself is marked with pain around the breast, the breast appears to appear a lump, the size of the affected breast looks bigger, fever, and sometimes a lump appears in the armpit area. If Asi production is not much and has not come out, but your child is still breastfeeding, the pain you feel can be caused by tension in the breast muscles.
However, it needs to be known that in order to establish a diagnosis and cause of a disease, further interviews and further physical examination are needed. Therefore, I suggest if the complaint that you feel gets worse immediately consult a doctor. But if your complaint isn't annoying and burdensome, then you can do several ways to reduce these symptoms, including:
breastfeed your child with breasts alternately doing massage on the affected breast gently if pain appears you can compress with warm water do not use underwear that is too tight to support your breasts Hopefully useful. Always healthy 😊
