Why Are The Areola Crusty?
At night, I am 16 years old, I have experienced this for more than 1 month. My breasts itch and at night I am semi-conscious I scratch with my hands directly and in the morning my right breast and areola emit a yellow fluid and crust and stick to the bra, I usually put tissue on my breast, so that it doesn’t stick to the bra. Then, in my areola there are lumps of red and not hard, two lumps. And I see like there are watery spots, and the skin peels like that. Then yesterday I saw my nipples as if they were going to break, because there was like a fold in the nipple circle, and today I saw my areola striped and bleeding when I took off my bra. Now sometimes itchy. I have replaced my bath soap with baby soap and the itching has decreased. Oh yes my nipples are also enlarged right like swollen in my opinion. The point is, my breasts and areola release yellow fluid and it will crust, then when I want to take off the bra, it sticks, and if we roughly remove the bra, it bleeds a little. Please help. Thank you ^^
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Crusty and easily injured nipple breasts can be caused by several possibilities, including:
Excessive friction on the nipple (for example, because the bra used is not suitable size, the bra material is too rough)
Irritation or allergy due to certain materials that come in contact with the nipples (for example detergent or fabric softener used for washing bras, soap that you use for bathing, etc.)
Breast cancer (very rare and even rarer in young women)
Atopic dermatitis or eczema is one of the most common causes of crusty and itchy nipples. You should check yourself to the doctor for a direct examination of your nipples and the administration of treatment in accordance with the cause.
The following are some things you can do:
Use a bra that is the right size for your breasts
choose a bra made of soft material
Use hypoallergenic detergents to wash your bras and avoid using softener or deodorizer to wash bras.
Avoid using creams / lotions / perfumes in your breast area
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
