Thanks for posting your query.
A blocked duct can be made to resolve more quickly if you:
on that side and draining the breast better. This can be done by:
Getting the best latch possible .
Using compression to keep the milk flowing .Get your hand around the blocked duct and compress it as the baby is breastfeeding if it is not too painful to do so.
Feeds the baby in such a position that the baby’s chin “points” to the blocked duct. Thus, if the blocked duct is in the bottom outside area of the breast (7 o’clock), then feeding the baby in the football position may be helpful.
Apply heat to the affected area. You can do this with a heating pad
or hot water bottle, but be careful not to burn your skin by using too much heat for too long a period of time.
Try to rest. Of course, with a new baby it is not always easy to rest. Try going to bed. Take your baby with you into bed and breastfeed him there.
If the blister
is quite painful (it usually is), it is helpful to open it, as this should give you some relief from the pain. You can open it yourself, but do this one time only. However, if you need to repeat the process, or if you cannot bring yourself to do it yourself, it is best to go to see your doctor .
Once you have punctured the bleb or blister, start applying the "all purpose nipple ointment" after each feed for a week or so.
Hope I have answered your query.
Wishing you good health.
