Breastmilk for eye infection? *Momma2Boys* 2 kids; Kansas 3014 posts

So I have read a few things that say breastmilk will cure pink eye or sty's. Has anyone ever tried this? Does it really work?

Yes, I tried it, and no, it didn't work. It made the infection worse, lol.

It won't rid of the sty over night... and I wouldn't use someone else's, personally.

a lot of the things I have read claim it did, but I figured that part was probably too good to be true. I just dont want it getting any worse, it doesnt look THAT bad yet lol

This is why i did it too. My poor boy had a blocked duct for 6 months and it was always oozing. After 2 days of massagine and squirting milk in there it was all better

Yes, and it works- you have to put a few drops in every few hours. It also works on ear infections :)
