It is inflammation of the breasts that causes pain, reddish coloration, and excessive heat in them. Sometimes this condition is caused by an infection, which causes chills and a high fever.
Mastitis is usually associated with breastfeeding, so it usually occurs in women who breastfeed their babies, although it can affect any woman and even men.
Lactating mastitis causes a dryness sensation in the breasts, giving the impression that they no longer contain milk, hindering the baby’s feeding and accelerating breastfeeding suspension because it is recommended to suspend it when receiving antibiotic treatment.
The accumulation of milk in the breast tissue that produces a blockage of the ducts and bacterial infections are usually the most frequent reasons for the appearance of this condition.
