Introduction: Mastitis


Mastitis: Mastitis is a breast infection or inflammation that mostly occurs in breast-feeding mothers. The typical presentation is a young lactating women with mastitis symptoms such as fever, flu-like symptoms, and breast tenderness and/or breast redness. In such cases, mastitis often progresses rapidly over hours, and it is common for breast-feeding mothers to try to fight off the fever (which may precede any breast redness), and the fever then rapidly progresses to more severe symptoms such as high fever, chills, nausea, and so on. Early treatment of mastitis is desirable for practical comfort in treatment of fever, and avoidance of the complications of mastitis.
