Mastitis is the inflammation of the breast tissue. Mastitis can arise in any woman but is most common in breastfeeding women. In lactating females, mastitis develops because of the blockage of milk ducts and milk stasis due to incomplete emptying of milk. Risk factors for milk stasis include blockage of milk ducts from pressure such as tight fitting clothing, using one breast for feeding child, and using the same position to feed the child. These result in improper drainage of milk from the breast. Other causes of mastitis is the transfer of infection to milk ducts from damaged or cracked nipples and direct trauma to the breast. The main advantage of using homeopathic treatment for mastitis is that these medicines are free from side effects. Hence, they are very safe to use for the mother as well as the baby. Homeopathy is highly successful in treating many health conditions in women, Mastitis being one of them. Homeopathic treatment for mastitis helps decrease the inflammation, swelling, pain, tenderness, heat in breast and other accompanying symptoms. Homeopathic medicines that are most beneficial for treating mastitis are Belladonna, Phytolacca, Croton Tig, Bryonia, Silicea and Hepar Sulph.
