Pain, redness, fever: Generally, a significant breast infection (mastitis) may cause sharp, shooting pains- especially when the baby is nursing. In addition, you may experience flu-like symptoms with body aches, fever, or red hot spots on the breast. A minor breast infection may show up with less irritation, redness, itching, or scaling. If in doubt, it is wise to contact your doctor.
