Caption: Mastitis in human breast. View of inflammation and reddening on the left breast, due to mastitis two weeks after the birth of a child. Mastitis is usually caused by bacterial infection through damaged nipples during breast-feeding. Symptoms include pain, tenderness, swelling, redness and engorgement of the breast with milk. Treatment usually includes taking antibiotics (antibacterial drugs) & analgesics (painkilling drugs), and expressing milk to relieve engorgement. Breast- feeding can be continued unless pus begins to drain from the nipple. Mastitis can also be caused by a hormone imbalance and usually occurs at puberty or in the newborn.
