    2. Most people get hot compresses wrong. Use ustained heat at 42Ëš Celsius for 10 minutes; do anything less, and it’s not worth doing at all. Regular in-office heat treatments with gland expression help as well. 

    3. You are what you eat. Consider a non-inflammatory diet such as low carb and low processed foods, and add omega 3 supplements.
