Mastitis

Types of Mastitis:

Non-infectious mastitis is usually caused by breast milk staying within the breast tissue due to a blocked duct or breast feeding tissue. If left untreated, the milk left in the breast tissue can become infected leading to infective mastitis.

Infectious mastitis is caused by a bacterial infection. It is important to receive antibiotic treatment immediately from your doctor to prevent complications such as an abscess within the breast.


What are the signs of infectious mastitis?

  • An area of the breast becomes red and hot and hurts to touch
  • A burning sensation in the breast
