I want to ask. My nipples were swollen and squeezed. But the itching was extraordinary, the swollen and reddened nipples. Why is that? I haven’t dared to check doctors.

Hi Regina .. Thanks for the question.

Nipples that feel itchy and red can cause concern for a woman, but you don't need to worry because not all complaints in the breast are caused by malignancy. Some of the causes of itchy nipples are:

Mastitis - inflammation of the breast tissue and commonly occurs in breastfeeding mothers Eczema or inflammation of the skin resulting in dry, red, cracked, and itchy skin Friction on clothes, especially when wearing a tight bra often causes skin irritation. Insect bites Breast cancer - accompanied by symptoms such as enlargement of the breast, the nipple looks pulled, blood comes out of the nipple, feels pain.To reduce complaints you can do including: use clothes and bras that are not too narrow to reduce friction, avoid scratching the itchy area, avoid using soap, lotion , shampoo, or perfume that is not suitable for your skin type. Meanwhile, if there is still no improvement, there is a lump or enlargement of the breast, and discharge from the nipple, then you should see a doctor so that the doctor can do a direct examination and a breast ultrasound can be recommended to support the diagnosis.
