Signs of Mastitis
Signs and Symptoms of Mastitis:
Mastitis symptoms are mainly a combination of fever (and related flu-like symptoms)
with breast symptoms such as sore breasts, breast swelling, or breast redness.
Fever and flu-like symptoms may occur early with only mild breast symptoms,
meaning that mastitis may be mistaken as flu or other causes of flu-like symptoms.
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.

and avoidance of the complications of mastitis....more...»
