Dr. Christine Greves said mastitis typically occurs within the first three months of breastfeeding and affects between 2% and 10% of new mothers.@ariejr/InstagramSymptoms of mastitis include pain, redness and swelling. Greves said that if those symptoms last longer than a few hours, it's a good idea to check in with a doctor in case antibiotics are needed.

"That's when you need to think if it's an infection," Greves explained."It's usually accompanied by a fever and an overall sense of body achiness, which we call malaise, and pain."Situations that leave women at risk for mastitis, according to Greves, include incidents of having had mastitis previously, problems with breastfeeding such as clogged milk ducts, rapid weaning, poor nutrition, stress, cracked nipples or infrequent feedings. headtopics.com

"The risk can be reduced by having a complete emptying of the breast frequently to reduce the incidence of stagnant milk hanging around in there," Greves said.Being hospitalized for mastitis is rare, according to experts.@ariejr/InstagramIt's rare to be hospitalized for mastitis, as in Burnham Luyendyk's case, according to Greves. Nine out of 10,000 breastfeeding women require hospitalization for the condition, she said.

Greves said it's important not to wait too long once breast pain and swelling occur before talking to a doctor."If you're noticing pain and redness and swelling, try to put some warm compresses on your breasts to see if it's a clogged milk duct," she said."But if it's not gone in 12 to 24 hours, you need to see a doctor in case you need antibiotics. You don't want it to lead to a breast abscess, for example."
