Breast Infection and Breast Abscess
Breast infections are rare but happen more often around childbirth, after an injury, or after surgery
You’re more likely to get a breast infection if you have diabetes or if you take corticosteroids (medicine to lower swelling and pain)
Doctors have you take antibiotics to treat the infection.
Doctors usually drain an abscess. To do this, doctors will:

Drain the abscess with a needle
