Breast redness while breastfeeding?

Could be infection: Redness on the breast particularly in a wedge or pie shape could be a sign of infection. This is especially true if the red area is warm to the touch and somewhat tender. See a provider who can determine if you need antibiotics.

Exam: It is unlikely to be cancer but more likely a vascular lesion. Have it examined for a diagnosis and to see if you require more testing. All the best.
