Effects Of Using Miconazole Ointment On The Nipples?
Hello Natain, Thank you for the question.
You should not start treatment before determining the cause by checking with your doctor. Treatment for each medical condition differs from one another. Miconazole is an ointment used to treat fungal infections of the skin. Not necessarily the cause of dry and itchy skin on the area around your nipples is a yeast infection. Apart from fungal infections, this complaint can also be caused by contact dermatitis, eczema, irritation due to friction with a bra, mastitis, or breast cancer. Treatment for this complaint depends on the cause. Therefore, please check with a skin specialist first. The doctor will need to do an examination of your breasts to determine the cause.
In the meantime, avoid scratching the itchy area. Avoid using a bra that is too tight. Wash your bras and clothes in a mild detergent and wash them thoroughly. If your bra is damp from sweat, replace it with a clean, dry bra immediately.
Hope this information helps you.
