Hello doctor,

I am a 36 year old unmarried girl. I am experiencing itching and pain in my nipples and areola upon scratching. During my periods, my breasts pain for a day or two and the pain subsides by itself. Now as it is winter, my breasts were dry, and I applied cold cream and vaseline. They are itching and become painful when I scratch. Please help. I am not on any medication. My height is 5'5", and weight is 65 kg.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • You probably have extreme dryness on nipples. Because of scratching, excoriation and infection may occur which is causing pain.
  • You need to apply antibiotic as of now and then keep it lubricated. Please consult a dermatologist in person for management.
