Even with different underlying conditions and factors causing the infection, the survivability of breast infection is usually high. Antibiotics usually clear the infection efficiently, or other treatments for breast infection may be recommended.
It’s important to determine what caused the breast infection through medical diagnosis in order to effectively treat the condition. This is especially true for breastfeeding mothers who may pass the infection to infants through infected milk ducts.
When treated early, the prognosis for breast infection is good. Schedule an appointment today if you suspect you suffer from mastitis.
