Abstract

MANAGEMENT OF POST NATAL BREAST ABSCESS THROUGH AYURVEDA- A CASE REPORT

Heena Mewara*, K. Bharathi Sushila Sharma and B. Pushpalatha

Abstract

Formation of breast abscess is one of the commonest complications during the postnatal period. Lactational breast abscess is accumulation of pus in an area of the breast and frequently develops as a result of inadequately treated infectious mastitis. Around 5% to 11% of lactating women with infectious mastitis will develop breast abscess and usually occurs between 3 to 8 weeks postpartum. This study was conducted in a single patient. A female post natal patient aged about 25 years, delivered one week ago, came to OPD of Prasuti and Striroga, National institute of Ayurveda, Jaipur with complaint of abscess in breast. On examination Stanavidradhi (Breast abscess) was found in right lower outer quadrant of breast in the ripen stage (nadi vrana), around 3 cm size having pus discharge mixed with milk. Patient was given Ksharsutra as a varti, Aragvadhadi kashayam externally and internally and Triphalaguggulu 2 tablet twice in a day with warm water. Internal drugs Aragvadhadikashayam and Triphalaguggulu were continued till the healing of the wound that is up to 10days. Reduction of pus discharges was started from second day onwards; granulation tissue started forming from seventh day onwards and mouth was closed on 10 day. Thus, we can conclude from the study that this Ayurveda regimen plays an effective role in the management of breast abscess.

Keywords: breast abscess, Stanavidradhi, ksharsutra varti, Aragvadhadikashayam, Triphalaguggulu.
