Itchy Breasts And Blisters Accompanied By Dry Skin Around The Breast?
Good night. I am 23 years old. I have experienced itching on the areola, it’s been about 2 weeks since the first itch. Initially dry skin (my skin does tend to dry) and then start to peel and itch until I accidentally peel because of scratching or friction with a bra until it blisters and releases water. I coat the tissue so it doesn’t stick directly to the bra. I have been using baby soap for a few days and I rub aloe gel on it. Still itchy but not scratched as much as possible. Can this part be compressed using an IV too? What can I dry quickly? Because if you take a shower, the wound will get wet again. Thanks.
Good evening, thanks for the question
Symptoms of itching and dry skin around the breast or areola may be caused by dermatitis. Dermatitis or inflammation of the skin can be based on irritation or allergic reactions due to scratching, friction with clothing, soap, detergent, and so forth. Symptoms can include itching, redness, burning or pain, peeling skin, the presence of fluid or pus, scab, or broken-looking skin.
To overcome this, do the following at home:
1. Avoid contact of substances or chemicals suspected as a trigger.
2. Avoid scratching the itchy area because of the risk of causing infection.
3. Use a moisturizer to moisturize dry skin.
4. If the wet wound should be covered with sterile gauze and avoid contact with water.
After that, do further consultation with your doctor directly for further examination and treatment. In the condition of dermatitis, treatment is needed using a topical steroid to suppress the inflammatory reaction. Then if accompanied by a secondary infection then antibiotic therapy needs to be given. Avoid using drugs without a doctor's prescription because of the risk of incorrect indications and dosages.
That's all, hope you can help.
