Important Tips For Mothers

It has been observed Mothers who breast feed there kids, do get boils in there breast. They avoid going to doctor and ends up in applying any herbal medication. This practice is commonly seen in villages, as husband is orthodox and doesn't want his wife to visit male doctor to examine the boils. Looking at problem from husband side, mother avoid going to the doctors, instead they use home made medication. Home made medication mostly fails to kill all the bacteria in Breast boil. Which leads to an infection in underneath skin of breast and further milk ducts and pigments are infected. Due to which milk released by milk duct inside breast forms lumps. This is more dangerous for Mother and infants. Mothers who have boils on there breast should avoid feeding there infants. First they have to take proper treatment to heal the boil, later after consulting Doctor only start feeding infants. Mostly it has been experienced infant getting admitted in hospital because of drinking mother's milk. Basically in villages mother do feed there infant when they do have full formed boil on there breast and unknowingly contaminated milk is consumed by the infant, which contains traces of harmful bacteria.

Looking at the all the problems created by boils, best thing to keep our self clean. Have bath daily with clean water. Use proper soap while having bath. Keep healthy diet. Reduce intake of Alcohol during summers. In the last, always consult doctor or herbal expert before using any medication on boils.
