Breast Infection: Treatment, Cost and Side Effects

What is Breast Infection ?

Breast infection, commonly known as Mastitis, is the infection of the breast tissues and commonly occurs in women during the period of lactation or breastfeeding. It is caused when bacteria, from the infant’s mouth, travel through the crack in the nipples to the milk ducts. It is often found to be the case with new mothers and happens mostly during the first three or four months of the delivery of the baby. Women going through the menopausal phase can also be infected. The symptoms include tenderness and swelling of breasts, fatigue and exhaustion, body ache and fever. In some cases there may also be the presence of abscesses, which are damaged tissue cavities filled with pus. Seeking medical care is recommended if there is discharge from the nipples, prolonged pain in the breasts, if the breasts are painfully engorged, etc. Breast infection is common in about 2-4% women and the treatment of the same is easily availed to anyone in need. Women are often advised not to stop breast feeding, even though it may be painful. This is because the accumulation of the breast milk in the ducts may cause the breasts to engorge and hurt more. Emptying of the ducts is necessary so as to heal it. If there is discomfort in breastfeeding, switch to a breast pump to empty the ducts out completely, thus providing relief. The infection will not harm the baby while breastfeeding but it is not recommended when an abscess is detected. To ease the pain, warm baths or warm washcloths can also be used. If heat doesn’t work, then applying ice packs to the affected area may soothe it. All of these methods are in addition to taking a healthy diet and drinking plenty of water, as diet and hydration of the body plays an important role in treating an infection.

How is the treatment done?

The treatment for the Breast infection begins through the examination of the symptoms and the infected area. Generally a 2 week antibiotic course is given to treat the infection and most of the women are generally treated with this form of medication. It is advised to breastfeed even in case of the medication treatment. For subsiding the pain and discomfort, drugs like Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen are widely used. These are just over-the-counter methods of suppressing the pain. A doctor may prescribe various other antibiotics, depending on the severity of the pain and the type of antibiotics to which the body may respond well. Although in the cases with mild mastitis, antibiotics are not prescribed at all. If medications are prescribed at all for simple mastitis, Cephalexin, Erythromycin and Dicloxacillin are the commonly prescribed ones. Chronic breast infection, however, does not respond well to antibiotics and therefore requires serious medical attention. If all the symptoms point towards breast infection, then diagnosis of the same is a must, which is usually done through physical examination. Ultrasound is one of the methods used to detect whether the supposed abscess isn’t the deadly tumor. If confirmed to be an abscess, it is surgically drained. Samples are also taken of the breast milk to identify the type on medicines to be prescribed to the infected. For women who are not breastfeeding, mammograms are considered so as to be sure the pain or the other symptoms are not of breast cancer. In case there is the presence of an abscess in the breasts, it is necessary to drain it surgically from the body as pus may accumulate in the area and it may cause more trouble and pain. The procedure is carried out under the effect of anesthesia so as to avoid the patient going through the pain. If the abscess is close to the skin, the surgical procedure is carried out with a mild anesthetic in the clinic, but if it is deep inside the breast, the process is carried out in the operating room so as to completely drain the area. The procedure may also include the use of IV (Intravenous) and antibiotics. The patient may also have to stay at the hospital depending on the severity of the condition. But if the infection points out to be more severe in nature the doctor may advise to get the breast cancer test done and then the patient has to follow the course of breast cancer treatment on the basis of the outcome of the results.

Who is eligible for the treatment?(When is the treatment done ?)

The womens who are breast feeding and are having symptoms like pain in the breast, enlargement of one breast, tenderness and pain, presence of lymph node etc. must report to the doctor and are eligible for this treatment.

Who is not eligible for the treatment?

The women who are suffering from either mild or just a simple breast infection may not need to get worked up at the mention of surgery. It is only done when there is an abscess present. Simple breast infection just requires a little medical care and attention and antibiotics which are easily provided and prescribed by a doctor. The surgery in case of breast infection or mastitis is only done for the drainage of abscess and not for any other reason. To be sure of the condition, it is utmost necessary to consult a doctor at the sight of first symptoms. When treated properly, breast infections tend to heal quickly and do not persist for long. In addition to this, it is noteworthy that breast infection or mastitis does not breast cancer. The two are very different medical conditions, although some of the symptoms of breast infection are the same for breast cancer. Hence, the medical advice is suitable.

Are there any Side Effects?

After consulting the doctor, the intake of the prescribed medicines or antibiotics seems like the wisest thing to do. And it is, to soothe the pain and heal the infection as soon as possible. But the medicine usually prescribed for the treatment of a breast infection may come with a few listed side effects. The aforementioned commonly prescribed medicines for the treatment of breast infection like Cephalexin, Erythromycin and Dicloxacillin have their individual side effects that should be well-informed and kept in mind before someone starts ingesting them. Dicloxacillin is used commonly for treating mastitis and isn’t known for severe side effects but it does come with a handful of mild ones like causing indigestion and nausea in patients. Skin rashes and irritation are also among these effects. Erythromycin also mimics the same side effects as Dicloxacillin accompanied with fever, and is not suitable for people who have allergic reactions to penicillin. Cephalexin is another drug for the treatment of mastitis. It is safe for use while breastfeeding but not suitable for patients with stomach or liver disorders, diabetic patients and patients with kidney problems and illnesses. It is highly advised to let the doctor or OB/GYN know your full medical history before he prescribes one of these or any other drug, so that other problems may not arise, contributing to the infection and so that the doctor may recommend drugs that are suitable for your needs and would treat the infection all the same.

What are the post-treatment guidelines?

Even after the treatment, utmost care is to be taken of the infected area. Antibiotics should be taken as advised by the doctor. Temperature should be recorded every 24 hours and if symptoms like fever vomiting are noticed, call the doctor. Make follow up check-ups with your doctor. In case of an abscess that has been operated, the patients are required to not exert physical pressure on their bodies for three to four days and take their medicines as prescribed. Clean the incision area as instructed. While bathing, the incised area is to be washed gently and cleaned thereafter. The bandages are to be changed if they get soiled or soaked.

Prevention of mastitis is also possible. It is not very common in healthy women and is mostly the result of unhygienic breastfeeding practices. Washing of hands and the nipple region is suitable so as to avoid it. Cleaning of one’s own baby is also crucial. Keeping yourself hydrated and eating well is another key point towards keeping infections at bay. Another prevention tip may include feeding from both the breasts equally.

How long does it take to recover?

One shall start feeling better within two days of the course of antibiotics but the entire effect shall depend on the duration of the course of the antibiotic. In case of surgery the effect can be noticed after a month.

What is the price of the treatment in India?

The treatment of breast infection is commonly available at clinics in India. In addition to the doctor’s fee, which may vary from doctor to another, the treatment is not very pricey as the antibiotics commonly used not expensive. The treatment of an abscess, on the other hand, may vary. Different doctors charge different amounts for the same procedures. The price could vary from INR 4,000 to as high as about INR 60,000. One can choose, according to their budget and convenience and decide what’s best for them.

Are the results of the treatment permanent?

No, the results of the treatment are not permanent. Mastitis, though common in breastfeeding women, can happen due to unhygienic practices as well. In menopausal women, the abscess can be recurring and routine check-ups are suitable for healthy life.

What are the alternatives to the treatment?

There are various home remedies for the treatment of breast infection. If one is more inclined towards to natural remedies, the use of cold cabbage leaves on the infected breasts could prove useful. Eating 2-3 raw garlic cloves on an empty stomach would also be beneficial.

Breast infection or not, women should learn to care about their health as much as possible and not just when they suffer from an illness, in order to lead healthy and happy lives. Awareness of the same plays such an important role as well.

Treatment For Itchy Nipples During Pregnancy!

Pregnancy brings a lot of changes in the personal life, social life, physical appearance, and most importantly internal changes in the body of the mother-to-be. From quitting smoking, cutting on alcohol and moving towards a healthy lifestyle are some of the many changes in the life of the expecting mother that are needed to give birth to a healthy baby.

Every woman undergoes some or the other changes during this journey of becoming a mother, including sore and bigger breasts, itchy nipples, nausea, vomiting, constipation, mood-swings, endocrine system changes, change in physical structure, shift in the centre of gravity of the body, heartburn, skin changes, abnormal food cravings, Linea Nigra, sleep disorders, swollen feet, increased respiratory rate and so on.

As the pregnancy progresses, the breasts begin to become more tender, larger, and fuller, caused by the increased level of estrogen and progesterone and increased blood flow. Women often experience itchy nipples in the early pregnancy, as the breasts grow larger and become heavy, they become dry and start getting cracks, resulting into itchy nipples.

How to Treat Itchy Nipples:

  1. Maternity/Nursing Bra: Investing in a good nursing bra can work wonders to the itchiness that the women experience during pregnancy since it provides relief, comfort, reduces sweating, and reduces the stress of itchy nipples.
  2. Lotions and Moisturizers: The usage of lotions containing a good amount of moisturizer, such as Aloe Vera, vitamin E and cocoa butter. Application of moisturizer regularly after bath keeps the skin nourished and reduces the chances of developing itchiness in the nipples. Regular usage of the lotion can reduce the itchiness in the nipples and help to provide comfort to the expecting mother. The lotions should be used at least twice a day to provide the moisture required.
  3. Avoid harsh chemicals: Less exposure to the harsh chemicals leads to a better skin, similarly avoiding harsh chemicals around the nipple benefits the breasts and nipples, making the nipples less prone to the itchiness, hence harsh soaps, fragrances, perfumes etc. should be avoided.
  4. Usage of natural oils: Application of a mixture of natural oils, such as almond oil, lavender oil, and olive oil on the affected area helps in reducing the itchiness caused.
  5. Petroleum jelly: Petroleum Jelly application regularly several times in a day, helps in locking the moisture in the breasts making the nipples not itchy and maintaining smooth skin.
  6. Hydration: Drinking a lot of fluids helps in reducing the dry skin, which is also one of the reasons causing itchiness in the nipples.
  7. Personal hygiene: Maintaining a good personal hygiene is one of the most basic requirements to keep any body part itch-free. Discussing such things with the doctor not only helps one to be away from itchy nipples but also helps to understand the various reasons why the current regime being followed is not working.

Having itchy nipples is not related to having a bad health and can be reduced easily so that the pregnancy can be enjoyed without much worry.

Premature Birth - How To Take Care Of Your Baby?

Premature Birth - How To Take Care Of Your Baby?

The usual full term for a pregnancy is usually around 39 to 40 weeks which varies slightly from woman to woman. However, if your baby is born before the 37th week, then he or she may be considered preterm or to have a premature birth. Premature babies are at a higher risk of infections and may also face a lot of other complications such as low birth weight, anemia, apnea or difficulty in breathing. Some pre-term babies may also end up developing hearing and vision impairments along with developmental problems, learning disabilities and other chronic health problems throughout their lives.

How to take care of your preterm baby?
Although your preterm baby may be predisposed to certain problems, if you take care of them well enough then none of the complications or health problems may occur and they will end up having a normal life like other babies who have been delivered after the full term. Initially, your baby may be kept in a NICU or Neonatal Intensive Care Unit for a few days until the doctors can describe them out of danger.

Some of the things that you can do as parents during that period are mentioned as follows:

  1. Ensure a supply of breast milkIt is important for you to have an ample supply of breast milk stored as and when your baby needs it. Breast milk helps fight infections as well as provides important nutrients for your baby’s development. Your preterm baby may not be able to have breast milk initially and thus you may have to store them via refrigeration.
  2. Ask for supplements to breast milk for your baby: Your preterm baby may not be able to have breast milk immediately after birth. It is thus important to discuss with the doctor about the right milk supplements which can be given to your baby to help with their nutrition and development.
  3. If you have concerns, immediately bring them up: It is important to share any changes in your baby’s health with your doctor and bring up any concerns with them. They may not seem very significant, but it still makes sense to let the doctors know as it may indicate other serious problems that may develop.
  4. Gather and stay on top of information: It is important to gather as much information as possible for the condition of your child and prepare yourself before you take your child home. Ask the doctors and other medical staff at hand what is being done and what you will need to do once your baby is discharged.
  5. Connect with your baby: Even if your baby was born early, you can have skin to skin contact with him or her as long as the precautions have been properly followed. Also, sing and talk to your baby as you would to a normal child as this would help build closeness and emotional connect between the two of you. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Common Breastfeeding Problems & Their Solutions!

Common Breastfeeding Problems & Their Solutions!

Breastfeeding has shown to have an incredible impact on the growth and development of an infant on account of the nutrients which are provided to the baby. The mental development which occurs due to breastfeeding is said to show even years from the time that a person was an infant. When a person considers just how important breastfeeding truly is, she would not want to make a mistake, would she?

A lot of new mothers are concerned, if their babies seem to fall asleep while feeding a lot quicker than they should. As a matter of fact, they worry that the babies will not get enough breast milk and this can stunt the development of the young ones. While this is true, it can be said that a few steps taken can make sure of the fact that there would be nothing for the mothers to worry about.

  1. Inadequate consumption: It is natural for a baby to have a tendency to fall asleep, after all, that rapid rate of growth is likely to consume a lot of energy. In order to make sure the baby consumes enough milk prior to falling asleep, what should be done is that the mother should transfer the baby from one breast to the other one when she notices that the rate at which the baby is consuming is slowing down. The effect this has is to make sure that the rate of transfer is maximised; as the fastest rate, the milk transfers is when the baby begins suckling, for the first few minutes.
  2. Risk of Infection: Taking into due account what a sensitive and important process breastfeeding is, it can be said that an infection is something which can disrupt the process. One of the infections happens to be thrush. This is one which can spread from the mouth of the baby to the breasts of the mother. The effects of the infection include soreness and possibly even a rash. A doctor would probably provide the patient with some anti-fungal medication in order to fight the infection off.
  3. Latching problems: Another issue which is faced by new mothers is that there is a pain when the baby is to latch on to the nipple. In order to reduce this, what can be done is that the mother can try keeping the baby in a position to cover as much of the area under the nipple than over and adjust the baby to cover the nipple when he or she yawns.

These are just some of the common issues faced by new mothers. However, following a few simple measures can ensure that the experience of breastfeeding is most satisfying for both mother and child. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Gynaecologist.

Breast Lumps - How Can They Be Treated?

Breast Lumps - How Can They Be Treated?

A breast lump is an enlargement, swell, protuberance or a bump that is different than the breast tissue surrounding it. Breast lumps can appear in men as well as women and they can be benign or malignant. Causes of benign breast lumps are as follows:

  1. Fibroadenosis: Also known as Fibro-cystic breast disease, it is a benign condition that affects the breast. It may affect either of the breasts or both. One of the major symptoms of Fibroadenosis is a breast lump. Usually, the lumpiness disappears after the menstrual cycle is over. Fibroadenosis occurs because the breast tissue doesn’t respond well to the hormonal changes during the menstrual cycle.
  2. Fibroadenomas: Fibroadenomas occur because of abnormal response to the hormone oestrogen. The lumps are usually well formed and round, around the milk ducts of the breast. Breast lumps due to Fibroadenomas are called breast mice, because they move around the breast. In some cases, they disappear and in some, they tend enlarge during pregnancy.

Other benign causes of breast lumps are breast abscesses, breast cysts, lipoma (lump of fat), mastitis (infection in the breast tissues), fat necrosis (another name for breast lumps) and intraductal papilloma (benign tumour of the milk ducts in the breast). A breast lump that is firm, well defined and doesn’t move around, i.e. it doesn’t disappear after your period or pregnancy, may be a result of breast cancer.

Treatment of breast lumps
The treatment of a breast lump depends on its cause. Benign breast lumps usually disappear over time. Otherwise following treatments can be considered as per the doctor’s discretion-

  1. Medication: If the breast lumps are painful or increase over time, it is advisable to take medication.
  2. Limiting the amount of fat in the diet or wearing well fitting bras also reduces the amount of pain due to breast lumps.
  3. Certain types of breast lumps are filled with fluid or pus. This fluid can be drained through a procedure called aspiration or drainage.
  4. A radical way to treat a breast lump is surgery. Many a times, these lumps get bigger and painful and the most effective way to deal with it is to remove it. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a gynaecologist.

Common Feeding Problems Faced By Mothers!

Common Feeding Problems Faced By Mothers!

Spitting up, refusing to try new foods and occasionally turning up their noses at feeding times, is normal but consistently refusing food and water, vomiting and allergies may indicate an underlying medical condition that requires attention. Common feeding problems that affect infants include sucking, prolonged chewing without swallowing, holding food in their mouth and grabbing food. Infants who are unable to close their mouths in order to keep food inside may also be said to be suffering from feeding problems.

Feeding problems could be triggered by medical conditions like a cleft palate, premature birth, respiratory problems, low birth weight etc. or by non-medical reasons such as the child’s feeling of being unloved or stressed. Symptoms of feeding problems vary from infant to infant.

However, some of the common symptoms exhibited are:

  • Problems with chewing

  • Excessive drooling

  • Refusing to eat foods or drink liquids

  • Long feeding times

  • Coughing or gagging while feeding

  • Difficulty with breast or bottle feeding

  • Nasal stuffiness while eating

  • Poor weight gain

  • Recurring respiratory infections

  • Vomiting or excessive spitting up of food

  • Arching the back while feeding

  • Disinterest in feeding

Though feeding problems are minor in most cases, it is important to consult a doctor if this behaviour continues over a period of time. This is because the child may be suffering from an underlying medical condition or could be at an increased risk of suffering from dehydration, aspiration and lung problems. It could also lead to delayed physical and mental development, speech problems and cognitive issues.

Feeding problems are addressed in many different ways. The first step to dealing with feeding problems is to change the texture and temperature of food being given to the baby. In addition, try changing the posture of the baby while feeding.

In some cases, mouth exercises may be needed to strengthen the mouth muscles. Chewing exercises and tongue movement may also help reduce feeding problems.

Encourage your infant to try different types of food by including different textures in their daily meals. Alternating food textures and liquids can make it easier for the infant to swallow the food. Do not force your child to eat in a hurry but let him or her take their own time.

In cases where the infant is not gaining weight, the doctor may suggest nutritional changes and a specific diet to help gain weight. In emergency cases, hospitalisation may also be required and your baby may be given a feeding tube to ensure he or she receives adequate nutrition.

Breast Surgeries
Here are methods of increasing and reducing the size of the breast.

Good evening I am Dr. Sandeep Bhasin from Care well medical center we had in CR Park. So now I am going talk about some common breast surgeries.

In Females, there are two kinds of breast surgeries that are very common one is we may want to increase the size of the breast the other is we want to reduce the size of the breast and lift the breast up if the breast is sagging.

The first kind of surgery in which we want to increase the size of the breast is called Breast Augmentation.There are two methods of doing breast augmentation. We can do breast augmentation by using silicone implants or we can also use the fat grafting. So we are doing both these methods. There are advantages of using implants and there are some advantages of using fat grafting.

The advantages of using silicone implants-

It s a very quick procedure within one and half an hour we can do the whole surgery.
The recovery is very fast with the implants.
The post-operative the breast shape is really very good.
There are some disadvantages of the implants-

It is very expensive
In the long run, we have to remove and change the implant after 10-15 years.
It s a form Bowery it is not natural in the body.
There are some Fat grafting's advantages-

It is much cheaper to the silicone implants.
It is natural we are not using something artificial.
The results are very much natural in this because nothing artificial has been used and it also improves the skin texture.
The disadvantages of fat grafting-

It takes much longer time about 4-5 hours.
The surgeon has to be very experienced.
Very few doctors are doing fat grafting because it is a difficult procedure as compared to breast implant and there has to be complete asepsis so that infection does not occur.
These are the few differences between the two procedures.

Coming to Breast reduction and breast lifting there are different methods that are available and what we are doing nowadays is vertical mastopexy or Hall Findlay s Mastopexy. In this there is a vertical scar, minimal scar and the results are really very good. Not only can we reduce the size of the breast if this breast has become too big. We can also lift the breast up and that is called mastopexy. So this is one method that we are doing and the results are really very good in this. Sometimes we do liposuction also in the breast if we want to reduce the size of the breast. So for reduction, we have got mastopexy, Hall Findlay s mastopexy or some other mestopexy or we can do liposuction of the breast. These are the common procedures we do for the breast reduction and lifting the breast.

Thank you I am Dr. Sandeep Bhasin from Care Well medical center. For any inquiry you can connect me online on lybrate or you can come to my clinic which is Care Well medical center in Chitranjan Park near NRI complex, House No.1, NRI complex. Thanking you. Seeing to meet you again.

Baar-baar in infections ke hone ki wajah se kuch females me infertility dikhai deti hai. So, this is a very common factor.

Iske liye hum jaankaari lete hai ki ise ayurveda se kese treat kiya jaae? Aur ye kyu hota hai?

Reproductive age groups me vaginal infections normally nahi hona chaie. Vagina ka jo pH rehta hai, that is acidic pH. So, normally we have all the resisting power against all the infections. But koi cheezein aisi hoti hai, jese ki unhygienic conditions, ya fir menstrual period me proper hygiene nahi rakhne se, ya fir during delivery period, ya fir delivery ke baad ke 3-4 months ke time duration me proper hygiene na ho, ya fir apki immunity power kam ho. Aisi cases me infections ho sakte hai, ya fir apko frequent urinary track infections ho sakte hai. Iske lie Ayurvedic treatment, jise hum kehte hai Yonidhavan.

Iske liye hum herbal medicines are decoction karte hai, uska kadah bana ke hum baginal track wash kardete hai. Ye sitting me kiya jata hai, iske liye 7-15 sittings lagte hai. Aur kabhi kabhi cervix, uterus ka mhu pe swelling hoti hai, jese chronic erosion rehti hai, jiski wajah se white discharge ki complaint bar bar rehti hai.

Iske liye hum Pap smear test karte hai jisse ki hume inflammation, infection, cancer etc rule out kiye ja sakte hai. Ise test karne ke baad he hum vaginal treatment dete hai. Isme 7-15 sittings hote hai. Ise hum Ayurvedic herbs ke zariye theek karte hai jisse ki ye poora theek hojata hai. Humare treatment se yeh infection bar-bar nahi hota hai aur apki immunity badhane ke liye hum apko oral herbal medicines bhi dete hai.

Iske ilawa apko koi jankaari chaie ho to aap mujhe lybrate.com ke through contact kar sakte hai.

Thank you.

Vaginal Infection
A woman's vagina makes discharge that's usually clear or slightly cloudy. In part, it's how the vagina cleans itself. It doesn't really have a smell or makes you itch. How much of it and exactly what it looks and feels like can vary during your menstrual cycle? At one point, you may have only a small amount of a very thin or watery discharge, and at another time of the month, it's thicker and there's more of it. That's all normal.
