ACUTE RESCUE : A young lactating mother of a one yr old child presented with shivering, teeth chattering and moaning due to pain in the right breast and is very uneasy, for the past 8-10 hrs; complaints started after she applied hot fomentation to the site of blunt injury , caused by the baby,( probably it’s head or it’s fist struck her) to the right mammae, the area over the right mammary gland is reddish in 2 spots the size of 2 small coins and mildly tender to touch. She is very thirsty and also has a vomitish feel since then and also afebrile.( She was told about the mistake she inadvertantly committed in applying hot fomentation, instead a cold fomentation w’d have been better. ) With which remedy do you think she can be rescued and an impending breast abscess can be avoided ?
