Red and warm: Like a bacterial infection anywhere in the body, it causes localized inflammation which looks red, feels warm, feels tense and swollen, and eventually can cause tissue death and burst spontaneously if an abscess has formed. In the breast there are ducts which lead to the skin and get blocked for various reasons. Since most of the infections can be serious, it is best to have a doctor look at it.
