Shortly after birth the breasts of the infant are frequently found to be swollen. This swelling is not occasioned, as is sometimes supposed, by the presence of milk, and therefore squeezing the breast will not only be productive of no good, but a vast amount of harm. The swollen parts may be covered with a linen cloth dipped in sweet-oil. If this produces no relief, the parts may be bathed in warm brandy and water, giving Cha-ommilla and Belladonna in alternation, three globules, or one drop in a glass half-full of water a teaspoonful at a dose, six hours apart. If, notwithstanding this treatment, the swelling still continues to increase, apply a bread and milk poultice, and if the gathering has opened, give three globules, or a powder of Mercury one evening, and the same of Hepar-s. the next.
