Hello Flowers, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Breast growth at puberty usually occurs at around age 8-13 years, although it can occur earlier or later than that age. Breast growth will usually begin with growth on the nipple first, then followed by growth of the surrounding breast. When the breasts grow, they may feel itchy or painful.
Although it may be due to normal breast growth, it is also necessary to consider other possible causes of breast pain in children, for example:
trauma / injury to the breast (for example due to collisions) infection of the breast pain in the muscles under the breast (for example due to excessive exercise) side effects of certain drugs You should first consider the presence or absence of the following signs:
swelling, redness, and feeling of warmth in the breast discharge from the nipple changes in the skin above the breast nipple goes in so that further tests can be done for your child.
To reduce the pain felt in the breast, you can give a warm compress or cold compress to the child's breast. Wear a t-shirt from a soft material that absorbs sweat if a child's breasts have not grown large, or give a miniset if a growth in the breast begins to appear.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
