What is Mastitis?
Mastitis is an infection of usually one breast, caused by the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus, which is a common bacteria found normally on skin. The problem occurs, however, when the bacteria finds its way into the breast via cuts on the nipple/cracked skin on the nipples, clogged ducts or undrained milk which creates a breeding ground for the bacteria. The infection is characterized by swelling of the fatty tissue which presses against the milk ducts causing swelling, lumps, pronounced veins, redness and tenderness.
What are the Symptoms?
- Swollen, painful red spot on breast
- Slightly salty milk from infected breast
- Baby refusing to feed from that breast
