Spots On The Nipple And Itchy Area?
There are spots on the nipple and itchy areas. My name is Siti Susanti, age 22 in my nipple area. There are spots and itchiness, what are the causes and how to overcome them.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The appearance of itchy spots around the nipples can be natural in women. This condition usually occurs due to hormonal influences, which often arise when approaching the menstrual schedule. Not infrequently, complaints on the nipples will appear accompanied by breasts that become more sensitive, painful, swollen, and appear enlarged. If there are no other complications, this condition will improve by itself when menstruation is over later.
It could also be itchy spots on the nipples arising from other triggers, such as allergic contact dermatitis, insect bites, infections (for example miliaria, folliculitis, scabies, candidiasis, tinea corporis, impetigo), irritant contact dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, eruption of drugs, xerosis , etc.
Most of the cases above are actually not dangerous. Try to resolve your complaint first with the following steps:
Take a clean bath twice a day, choose mild, non-irritating soaps
Do not scratch or rub itchy nipples, especially with dirty hands and sharp nails
Use a bra that is clean, not too tight, and made from soft
Do not exchange personal items with others, including underwear, clothing, towels, and so on
Avoid direct contact between the nipples and substances that might trigger allergies or irritants, such as harsh soaps, perfumes
Before the activity, use a moisturizer so that the skin does not dry
If within 3 days your complaint does not improve, but instead it is expanding or gaining weight, you better immediately consult a doctor or dermatologist so that it is handled correctly, right?
I hope this helps.
