For most patients, treating breast infection includes antibiotics. For breastfeeding patients, doctors may recommend a short break in breastfeeding or only breast pumping to allow the infection to clear. Doctors at Florida Hospital may also recommend warm compresses and massages if a blocked milk duct caused the condition.
For some patients, abscesses form due to infection. These may require drainage or surgery. For other patients, treatments for breast infection must be included in a comprehensive treatment for the underlying condition.
