The Nipple Feels Itchy?
Good morning, I want to ask this. I have been menstruating for 2 months late and my nipples itch every day, is there a way to deal with this? So much from me, thanks
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Itchy nipples can occur for several reasons, including:
Inflammation of breast tissue Eczema Impact of hormonal changes Irritation due to friction with clothing Skin fungal infection Dry skin conditions or xerosis Breast cancer
So actually, to really solve it will depend on the cause. Our advice is to have your complaint checked with a dermatologist so that you can be helped to find the right cause through history, physical examination by looking directly, as well as possible support if needed.
Meanwhile, what you can try to do at home is to use a moisturizer to avoid dry skin, avoid using detergents or other fragrances on clothes. If there is frequent friction, for example during exercise, you can use petroleum jelly and use a bra that is more comfortable or not too tight. So, hopefully it answers your question.
