Breast and breast skin that looks like chicken skin is not always dangerous. This chicken skin appearance may be caused by enlarged skin pores, for example due to the influence of exposure to hot temperatures, excessive skin rubbing habits, or also the use of skin care products that are not appropriate. It could also, looks like chicken skin is caused by other conditions, for example:
Keratosis pilaris (a buildup of keratin that blocks hair roots)
Folliculitis (hair root infection)
Other infections, for example miliaria, warts, scabies, chicken pox
Piloereksi (cut anserina, tightening of hair roots due to excessive cold exposure, heavy physical activity, or also strong emotional changes)
Others, such as hyperkeratosis, xerosis, milia, pilaris cysts, other benign or malignant tumors, etc.
Whether this condition is dangerous or not depends on the cause. However, you should be more vigilant if your complaint appears for a long time, spreads more rapidly to other areas of the skin, or is accompanied by thickening, curbing, hard lumps that are hard to move, or nipples that are sore or suppurating.

Clean and regular shower
Avoid rubbing or scratching the skin excessively

Use skin care products that are suitable for your skin type, as recommended by your doctor
Don't be afraid or worry too much
