Caption: Mastitis during breast-feeding. Close-up of an inflamed breast affected by mastitis. 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) and 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.
