Pediatrician 's  Response
Its an infection of the duct of milk glands.
Treatment with antibiotics is important.
Pain killers will improve the symptoms.
But don't stop breast feeding.
If you stop, there won't be production of adequate milk.
Baby needs adequate breast milk, difficulty during defecation is due to inadequate breast milk.
