Mastitis is a condition where the breast is inflamed. Commonly, an area of the breast is red and tender. There may also be a blocked duct, which feels like a lump in the breast. Mastitis generally occurs, however is not limited to the first 3 months after your baby’s birth. There is a peak of occurrence at the second week postpartum and another peak at 5-6 weeks.

Signs of Mastitis:

  • Part or all of the breast is markedly painful, hot and tender to touch, and may look red and swollen
  • You may feel tired, nauseous, run down, have chills, a headache or think you have the flu. You may feel achy all over especially in the low back and neck. These flu-like symptoms can occur before the breast tenderness
  • You may have flu-like symptoms plus a temperature around 38 degrees. The breast may become increasingly hot, tender and appear tight and shiny. These symptoms suggest you have an infection, which is more likely if you have cracked nipples.
  • You are feeling progressively worse. With simple engorgement, a blocked duct, or mastitis without infection, you should gradually feel better not worse.
  • Recent events have set you up for mastitis – eg. change in baby’s feeding pattern, increased stress and tiredness.

Management of Mastitis:

We offer Ultrasound treatment to help open the milk ducts and promote circulation. You may need 2-5 days of ultrasound treatment. It is encouraged that you receive at least 2 treatments in 2 consecutive days, however you may need up to 3 consecutive days or a couple of weeks of 2 consecutive days of treatment depending on the severity of your condition.
