Hot Compresses for Breast Pain

Hot Compresses for Breast Pains

Hot Compresses – Home remedy for Breast Pain: Run hot water over face towels and place them on your chest for a few minutes. Re-warm when necessary. A heating pad will hold the heat longer as will a homemade rice bag. To construct a rice bag, fill a clean thick sock with a cup of uncooked rice; close the opening with a knot and place in the microwave for 30 seconds or so. Watch it carefully since you do not want popped rice. Remove, test the temperature and place on your breasts.  Some women find alternating heat and cold helps minimize pain.

Always seek the advice of your doctor before taking herbal medications
