Causes Of Prolonged Itching On The Nipples?
My nipples already have a week of prolonged itching. Why yes? Ask for the answer. Thank you
Hello Rizky, thank you for asking.
Itching of the nipple can certainly be experienced in men and women. Several things can be a possible cause of these symptoms:
Dry nipple skin
Irritation due to friction with clothes
Contact allergy with an ingredient such as perfume, soap, shampoo, detergent, and so on
Dermatitis or bacterial infection
The worst and rare possibility is breast cancer. But generally the symptoms are not only itchy, but are accompanied by swelling, redness, skin sores and bleeding easily, pus or blood coming from the nipple, and pain.
You can reduce itching by wearing non-tight clothing, clothing made from absorbing sweat, applying moisturizer without perfume on the nipple area, and keeping the nipple from getting wet. If the itching does not decrease or actually worsen, consult a doctor immediately. Hope this answer helps. Regards.
