Parallel abstracts

Postpartum breast engorgement and ducts clogging are common complications of neonatal feeding, especially for the primipara mother, who often suffered great pain and inconvenience. We presented a case report of the traditional Chinese medicine treatment of a 42-year-old primipara mother with severe breast engorgement, serious pain, and difficult feeding. After treatment with Ling-Gui-Zhu-Gan Soup And Chai-Hu-Shu-Gan-San, combined with capping therapy at acupoint ST16, SP17, and SI11, the milk discharged smoothly and symptoms was relieved.
