Clogged Duct Again

Ladies I am suffering from a duct in my nipple that gets clogged about 1x a month. I do hot showers, feed regularly, and pump as much as I can, but there still is always a small sore spot on my nipple. I just read about taking lecithin, have any of you taken this? Did it help? Do you have any other ideas for me? Thanks.

hey I used to get plugged ducts with my son and all I would do for them is take warm showers etc. never tried lecithin.. one thing I found worked nice was those little hand warmers. (you can buy them at fleet farm for a dollar) They get realllly hot so dont stick on your skin..I'd stick it to the outside of my bra inside my shirt. The heat felt nice and worked way better than warm compresses. Hope this helps.. otherwise talk to your doctor see what they recommend. Good luck. =)

I've posted this answer a few times - but I don't know if it worked for anyone else yet. When I get a clogged duct, I nurse on all fours! lol - it looks sooooo stupid, but the duct always clears up in a few hours!
