  • * Breast tenderness or warmth to the touch
    * General malaise or feeling ill
    * Swelling of the breast
    * Pain or a burning sensation continuously or while breast-feeding
    * Skin redness, often in a wedge-shaped pattern
    * Fever of 101 F (38.3 C) or greater

    Although mastitis usually occurs in the first several weeks of nursing, it can happen any time during breast-feeding. Mastitis tends to affect only one breast — not both breasts.
