Mastitis is a breast tissue infection that can result from breast-feeding. If you have mastitis, your breasts may become sore, swollen, red, and warm. You might also experience flu-like symptoms, such as chills, fatigue, and a fever. You can continue breast-feeding your bundle of joy if you have mastitis; however, it may be more difficult due to the symptoms you are experiencing. An antibiotic will most likely be needed to cure mastitis since it is a bacterial infection. At the same time, a reusable hot/cold pack can help you take charge of your symptoms.
A warm pack is a wonderful way to soothe sore breasts while they are healing. You should aim to apply a warm pack to the affected areas four times a day for the doctor-recommended time of 20 minutes.
An ice pack can reduce the swelling and pain in your breasts. If you notice swelling, you should apply an ice pack within 24 hours, and leave it on for 20 minutes at a time.
If your breasts are tender, a gel hot and cold pack at the perfect temperature can help you relax and recover. The THERA°PEARL Breast Therapy pack is made to conform to your body for maximum comfort and relief.
