Hello Martha, thank you for asking.


At the time of nursing mothers, inflammation often occurs due to irritation or breast skin infection. Especially if only one breast is breastfed, then the breast will more often experience suction. The baby's sucking process sometimes causes small wounds which, if they occur continuously, will cause pain, redness, and swelling. Friction wounds can be infected with bacteria, causing widespread swelling, discharge or pus, hardened breast or lumps arise. Generally these conditions can subside with cold compresses within a few days. However, sometimes the condition continues, so that requires treatment with oral medication.


The pain and itching may be caused by friction wounds that arise. You can try giving a nipple-free moisturizer or other location to the painful breast, when the baby is not breastfeeding. Use underwear with the right size and material that absorbs sweat. Keep the breast skin clean and dry. If you continue to experience symptoms and get worse, you should consult a doctor. The doctor will give you ointments and oral medication that suits your breastfeeding condition.


Thus my short information, hopefully can help you. Regards.
