Mastitis is an inflammation of the breast, but it is not always due to a bacterial infection, so treatment with antibiotics is not necessarily appropriate. Your qualified physiotherapist may be better placed to treat your condition. Symptoms of mastitis in breastfeeding women may include breast pain, redness, swelling and flu-like symptoms. Many women self-treat using firm massage techniques and hot showers to try to decrease the pain – actions which can actually make mastitis worse!
