Hello Elisa, thank you for your question
During pregnancy, various changes occur in the body, one of which is the breasts and nipples. This is caused by hormonal influences during pregnancy, namely the hormones estrogen and progesterone, as well as prolactin, in order to prepare themselves for the breastfeeding process.
Unfortunately you did not clearly state your current pregnancy age. The following is a summary of breast changes during pregnancy, from the first trimester to the third trimester of pregnancy:
1st trimester - breast engorgement, often pain, tingling, and sensitivity due to increased blood flow and changes in breast tissue due to hormonal influences 2nd trimester - enlarged breasts, often visible blood vessels under the skin, darker and enlarged nipples
in some women, a slightly yellowish colustral discharge may appear from the 3rd trimester of the breast - the nipples and breasts are getting bigger, occasionally the skin on the nipples will appear to peel off due to this change in size If the peeling of the skin on the nipples occurs constantly accompanied by discharge, it could be signs of inflammation in the skin. It would be better if you see a doctor. Inflammation of the skin can be caused by infection, allergies, or irritation. Generally, infections are treated with drugs according to the originator, namely bacterial infections with antibiotics, fungal infections with antifungals, and so on. Meanwhile, allergic reactions or irritation are overcome by avoiding the triggers.
While waiting for the doctor's examination, it is recommended that you use a cotton bra with the right size. Keep the breast area clean by changing bras at least twice a day after every shower or more often if they are wet with sweat. Avoid using excess soap in the affected area of the breast or nipple because it can increase the possibility of irritation due to the chemicals in the soap.
