Inflammation of breasts symptoms; what is breast mastitis?


INFLAMMATION OF BREASTS - MASTITIS

Inflammation of the breast during breastfeeding, often occurs due to the volume of milk, or due to a weaker sucking of a child. Then the milk ducts of the milk which accumulates and forms lumps, which can lead to the development of unpleasant and painful bacterial inflammation called mastitis. When faced with this unpleasant infection, women are afraid that it is necessary to stop breast-feeding but one should know that the main therapy is just proper breast-feeding and milking.

BREAST INFLAMMATION; SYMPTOMS 

In the case of cancer susceptibility followed by painful lumps and redness, without elevated temperature, most likely it is the case of channel clogging. The milk cannot flow freely and this leads to its accumulation in the channel which causes inflammation of the surrounding tissue. This usually occurs in one breast and if these symptoms occur with the fever and / or flu it is possible that there has been development of a bacterial infection - breast inflammation mastitis. This condition, which favors the formation of painful cracks on the nipples - sores on the breast, can also be indicated by pus or blood in the milk, and red lines on the skin. Inflammation of breasts for nursing mothers is a common problem and it is necessary to discharge the milk especially in the beginning when the baby is not able to suck all the milk. There is a set of tools that facilitate the process, but the mother can do it herself by hand. Proper breastfeeding of the newborn is extremely important for the baby but also for the mother, as well as maintaining good breast hygiene after breastfeeding.

CORRECT WAY TO BREASTFEED 

How to properly breastfeed is often a question posed by a young mother, because it happens that a child does take the nipple completely which increases the risk of injuries to the nipple, creating wounds which favors bacterial inflammation of the breast. Therefore it is very important to inform herself with pediatric nurses who will show proper position for breastfeeding to avoid mastitis. Important is also different positions for breastfeeding - due to the fact that milk can accumulate in different parts of the breast, it is advisable to change positions when breastfeeding, in order to ensure uniform emptying. Offer your child both breast - if the baby sucked more milk from one breast, the next time you should first offer second breast.

THE CORRECT CARE AND HYGIENE OF BREASTS AFTER BREASTFEEDING IS THE BEST PREVENTION  

The mother should wash her hands before breastfeeding, while the breasts do not need to be washed before each use, but it is enough to daily shower. Warts on the breasts after feeding should not be wiped but leave the milk on them to dry, because in this way it creates a protective film. During the day, massage your nipples with creams for this purpose and wear a cotton bra. While at home, for some time you can be without a bra, it's also a great preventive of inflammation of the breast.


WHAT TO DO IF INFLAMMATION ALREADY OCCURRED? 

A sensitive red breast augmentation warns us that milk has stopped in the canal and needs to be cleaned as soon as possible to prevent infections and inflammation of the breast. Breast-feed as often as possible, and every time you can milk the breasts. First give a "problematic breast" to the baby, and during lactation, massage swollen area towards the nipple. Empty the breasts, wash the affected spot and massage it. Before showering, apply water or hold a warm coating on them for 10 minutes - in this way you will expand the milk channels and stimulate a better flow of milk, and thus reduce the pains such as painful breastfeeding.

NUTRITION DURING BREASTFEEDING

MASTITIS THAT IS NOT CONNECTED TO BREASTFEEDING 

If breast inflammation occurs in any other situations besides breastfeeding period, it is necessary to go to a doctor who will examine whether it may be a carcinoma mastitis or some other form of breast cancer. It is therefore necessary that the woman, as soon as she notices the symptoms of breast inflammation, tells the radiologist, oncologist or surgeon. It is not uncommon for breast mastitis to occur in developing girls due to the underdevelopment of the canal system, which increases the risk of bacterial penetration and development of the infection. This is especially the case during the summer, due to increased sweating, there are red and swollen breasts. Inflammation of the breast in the menopause is also common.
