Itchy Spots Festering Around Her Breasts And Nipples?
I feel itching on the cleavage of the breast, and spots occur like allergies, and around my nipples there are spots, too, when I push close to the nipple, it comes out pus, isn’t that dangerous? Because after I see Google almost all the answers are symptoms of breast cancer
Thank you for the question.
Breasts that feel itchy, mottled, and ooze pus when squeezed are actually not typically referred to as breast cancer. Typically, breast cancer will cause the breasts to grow with hard lumps, difficult to move, do not shrink even after menstruation, uneven surface, and cause changes in the structure of the skin of the breast and nipples (for example, the skin becomes rough, thickened, curved, such as pulled, wounded, or bleeding and pus from the nipple). However, although it does not specifically refer to the symptoms of breast cancer, some breast cancer sufferers may experience changes in the structure of the skin into spots, which if infected or secondary irritation can feel itchy and fester.
In addition to breast cancer, your complaints are actually more likely to occur due to breast infections, for example due to bacteria, fungi, or other microorganisms. Contact dermatitis, hormonal fluctuations, insect bites, drug side effects, prickly heat, and so on can also trigger complaints like this.
To be clear, you should check yourself directly to the doctor or dermatologist. Some types of drugs your doctor can prescribe if you suspect your complaint is mild. However, if deemed necessary, the doctor may also direct you to undergo an allergy test, blood test, to further tests to other specialists (for example surgeons).
In the meantime, focus first on maintaining the cleanliness of your breast skin. Avoid holding the breast except with clean hands that have been washed with antiseptic soap. Take a bath twice a day, use a bra that is clean and is replaced periodically, and do not carelessly exchange personal items with others. Do not forget, keep your skin away from substances that might trigger allergies or irritations, and do not carelessly give medication to your breast complaints without a prescription from a doctor.
Hope this helps ...
