Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Large or small nipple size can be very subjective. Therefore, with regard to the questions you ask, more precisely, you go directly to the doctor or obstetrician to make a more objective examination huh ..
Generally, at the age of 23, the nipples and breasts have grown perfectly until they reach the size of the nipples and breasts of adult women. This is characterized by raised nipples and apparently a mound of fat and muscle in the breast, so the breasts must be supported with a bra. At this age, the breasts become very sensitive so they easily feel pain, itching, tingling, and even often swelling around the menstrual schedule.
Nipples that are small and not protruding are actually not always a disorder. Some women are born with nipple size that is not large and tends to be flat (inverted nipple). As long as this condition does not appear accompanied by other complaints, such as lumps, pain, asymmetrical breast size, sores on the breast skin, changes in the structure of the breast skin, or abnormal discharge from the nipples, often this is not dangerous. This condition will usually improve as you age, especially later when you are pregnant and breastfeeding. Breast skin that looks dry and peeling also usually occurs solely due to excessive friction around the breast, poor personal hygiene, allergic to irritation.
But indeed, in rare conditions, small and non-prominent nipples can also indicate a more dangerous condition, for example due to hormonal disorders or even breast cancer. Can also, the skin of the nipple looks dry and peeling due to infection or other skin conditions, such as atopic dermatitis, xerosis, seborrheic dermatitis, and so on. You should be aware of this condition if the condition of your nipples and breasts does not improve for a long time. You can check yourself directly to the doctor if you find this condition.
Here are our initial suggestions for improving the condition of your nipples and breasts:
Drink more and live a healthy lifestyle
Always take good care of the cleanliness of your nipples and breasts, especially by cleaning it with a washcloth soaked in clean water every bath, do not use excessive soap
Use a bra that is clean, made from soft, and fit the size of your breasts
Do not carelessly smear anything around the nipples and breasts without consulting a doctor directly
Hope this helps ...
