I've had good luck with applying heat (I use a rice-filled sock heated in the microwave) to the infected breast and under the armpit. Also, I took Belladonna (homeopathic remedy) at the first sign of mastitis, and followed the other recommendations that you've been given (LOTS of nursing on infected side, rest and water). I didn't take the vitamin C, though, and that's good to add to my list of remedies! Thanks. If it's thrush, the treatment is different. I've been through that, too, if you need more help with that. Good luck and keep going!!
