Breast feeding was going so well, and now I’ve got this painful Mastitiis
Breast mastitis infection commonly affects women who are breast-feeding (especially during the first two months after childbirth) but can occur in all women at any time. Mastitis is a benign (non-cancerous) condition that can usually be treated successfully with antibiotics. Symptoms of mastitis include red, hot, painful, or inflamed breasts and other flu-like symptoms such as headache, nausea, high body temperature (101 degrees Fahrenheit, 38.4 degrees Celsius or greater), or chills. Women with symptoms of mastitis should see a physician. Breast-feeding with mastitis is generally not harmful to the baby and may actually help speed up recovery.
