Hello Rahma.


Mastitis is an inflammation of the breast tissue. Mastitis can occur in every woman. The causes of mastitis can be different, mastitis can be caused by a bacterial infection or blockage of breast milk.


One of the causes of mastitis is a bacterial infection, there are several factors that can increase the risk of mastitis such as wounds around the breast. In addition, several factors can also increase mastitis such as a history of previous mastitis, breastfeeding is just one breast, irregular breastfeeding schedule. Mastitis causes symptoms such as pain in the breast, redness and swelling in the breast, pain when giving milk.


From the circumstances that you experience, if you feel pain in the breast again, then it might be a recurring mastitis. But it is not recommended to consume just any antibiotic, because not all mastitis is caused by a bacterial infection. For a while you can compress the breast with warm water, breastfeed regularly, and maintain breast hygiene. Breastfeeding during mastitis is not dangerous for the baby, but if mastitis occurs, breastfeeding mothers will usually feel pain.


But other than that the situation that you experience can also be caused by other causes such as:

breast abscess
Other bacterial infections
certain tumors

Therefore, if your condition does not improve within 3 days, you should consult a doctor directly, so that the doctor can examine your condition further and provide appropriate therapy.
