Yellowish Fluid From The Nipple That Feels Painful?
I am a woman aged 36 years and only 2hrs. I have pain in the right nipple. coincidentally, when I checked on the 2nd day I touched and I squeezed my nipples, how come it came out yellowish liquid like pus, so I smelled there was no bad smell … now after I pressed it, I immediately came out, all my pain was decreasing. even on the 3rd day after at the time of the hospital’s hospital, I felt pain once in a while, but the liquid was not working out. The question is, what are I experiencing? Please explain? I am not breastfeeding. My second ank is 6 years old. first, when I was breastfeeding, it happened that to the 2nd ank, I never gave milk to the right milk. so I left the breast with milk from the left side. thanks for the instructions and directions from the doctor.

The existence of complaints of pain and yellowish discharge in your breasts, especially the right side, the possibility of this condition is an inflammatory process or infection in the breast which is also called mastitis. Mastitis is often felt by breastfeeding mothers, but in women who are not breastfeeding, this complaint can also occur due to infection due to hematogen or blood flow. Apart from the spread of infection through the bloodstream, the spread of infection through wounds or irritation in the breast area can also occur, so it is necessary to evaluate whether there is a history of inflammation or pain in your breast area.
Complaints of mastitis are often accompanied by complaints of pain, swelling, redness in the breast area, feeling tense or part of the sensation in some breasts, until the discharge in the breast one through the nipples. However, this condition must be confirmed by your family doctor or surgeon.
Some other medical conditions can also trigger complaints that are almost the same, such as:
1. breast abscess
2. chronic injuries to the breast
3. specific processes in the breast, such as breast tuberculosis
4. breast tumor
All of these possibilities require direct evaluation and examination by your surgeon. The doctor will conduct an interview directly related to the course of this complaint, even though this time the complaint has improved and the fluid is no longer active, it is advisable to continue the consultation and submit it to your doctor. Next the doctor will do a physical examination and if necessary, supporting examinations such as breast ultrasound will be planned, and blood tests for you. The results of the examination will be a reference for doctors in determining the cause and determine the treatment that can be given.
For now, you can do some independent treatment until you see your doctor, such as:
1. keep the breast area clean
2. give a warm compress to the area of the breast pain
3. use loose BeHa as long as this complaint still exists
