Ug, mastitis and DD is 22 months!  I'm through the awful first 36 hours and did start an antibiotic as my usual homeopathic remedies and massage didn't stop things in time.  Now having continued back strain and significant pain in the affected breast. I'm using a comb to gently comb my breast and massaging.  Using warm rice sock.  I'm breastfeeding as often as a 22mo will breastfeed, massaging and combing in a hot shower, resting.  Still, the large, hard lump doesn't seem to be getting any smaller and pain has increased today. Wondering what you found to be the best remedy or help for blocked ducts/mastitis.  Thanks!
