Any advice on getting rid of Granuloma Mastitis?

Hi everyone, I am new to this site and am happy to have found a place where I can talk about this specific problem as everyone I know does not know that much information on my condition. I am 22 years old and was recently diagnosed with granuloma mastitis during my pregnancy starting in March 2016. I have been dealing with it for the last couple of months, taking different antibiotics, had steroid injections in my breast during my pregnancy as the inflammation was extreme, I've gotten both breast drained as the condition started on one side and then started coming out on the other breast. At this point I have had my baby (second child) and still have open sores from my drainage, I even have puss coming out of some of them that does not seam to dry up. I am currently taking steroids, pain medications, and many other medications to stop the lactation as I am not a loud to breast feed as Doctor thinks it may cause an even bigger problem. I am honestly miserable and sad, I can't hug my children the wish I could, I can't even bond with my newborn and by the looks of it nothing is really getting better. This infection is eating my skin and has also made me loose weight. If anyone has any helpful advice who has gone through this or is going through it I would greatly appreciate any information, eating, home remedies anything. Thanks.

I have dealt with this off and on for over 12 years, I would try to stay away from sugar and inflammatory foods as a whole, I am eating low carb and daily doses of coconut oil, turmeric, ginger. I am starting Isagenix Supreme supplements tomorrow...I will look back in and let you know. I have been applying Bio Oil and lavender oil to my outbreaked area right now, it seems to help the swelling. I got Epson salt lavender oil and it seems to help. I am so sorry you are suffering so much, it's an unrelenting disease!
