Herbal Remedies for Sore Breasts

Sore breasts can be caused by hormonal changes, infection, and nursing.

For sore breasts that occur at times other than pregnancy or nursing, try hormonal regulators. During pregnancy and lactation, use a soothing salve or herbal oil or a soothing fresh plantain poultice.
