Mastitis is a condition which causes a woman's breast tissue to become painful and inflamed.

You may have:

  • fever and/or flu-like symptoms, such as feeling run down or very achy
  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • yellowish discharge from the nipple that looks like colostrum
  • breasts that feel warm or hot to the touch and appear pink or red.

It’s important to get the support you need from a health professional for advice and treatment if needed.
