  • There is no set time. It will dry up eventually.

  • You get raw cabbage leave and put one in each bra over the breast and wear it for the day. My friend swears by it.

  • It can take days, weeks, months, even a year or two. The cold cabbage leaves can help, it's a common remedy. Estrogen BC will also help.
