Common Questions and Answers about What causes itchy nipples in women


Avatar f tn Palmer's sells a vitamin oil spray for itchy skin. It's for pregnant women works really good. I got it at the drug store. It's in a spray bottle and its kind of orange looking.
Avatar m tn I would doubt cancer at her age .... inverted nipples occur due to something in the tissue beneath the nipple that is pulling the nipple inward. This doesn't necessarily mean that the problem is cancer .... it could be any number of things. Some women have inverted nipples for years for no apparant cause. If there is an itching problem then it is probably some type of skin irritation since the skin on the breast is the same as skin on any other part of the body.
Avatar f tn Sorry for TMI but my boobs have been soo itchy its crazy. I dont want to scratch but idk what to do? Help!
Avatar n tn The lack of magnesium causes problems with microcirculation and causes the blood vessels in the hands and feet to restrict - according to my GP. If you suffer from cold hands and feet it could well be this and supplementation with magnesium could help. It can also be caused by undiagnosed celiac disease. I've also heard that it's apparent in about 15% of people with CFS/ME.
Avatar f tn It all began following a camping trip when i was nine years old i came home with a lesion on my left temple terribly itchy and looked like poison ivy or a inflammed bug bite. I went to see several specialists, had many biopsey's showing it could be a bite reaction, leukeoclastic vasculitis, and 2 biopsey results showd up lymphocytic infiltrate. It has now been 16 years and the rash has spread to most of my body and the itch is just horrendous. The rash is definetely photosensitive.

Avatar n tn vinyl or latex or rubber causes allergies; so why the heck not our computer mice? In fact, in order to search tonight on the web, i've had to cover my mouse with a kleenex so that i could keep searching! The itching was starting back up...
Avatar f tn Last Nov 25, I had sore and lesions around my big nipples. Both of my nipples... THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I EVER HAD THIS IN MY LIFE. A day before that, I made love to my husband. That was the last sex I had with him before this condition happened. Well, we almost do this at least 3 times a week. He loved sucking my big nipples using his teeth and I had a feeling that's the reason why it got aggravated. On the 26th, I felt the pain more - like a stabbing pain.
Avatar n tn Just listen to what the doctor in the 1st reply to this post people. Allergic dermatitis. Also known as allergic contact dermatitis. Usually when people suffer this reaction, the allergy is synthetics. Polyester, vinyl etc... Arms and legs is what led her to think this was it. Because it is a classic place to erupt from this allergy. I have it and my arms and legs did this too. Except when it got worse, then it spread all over. Nice to see a doctor mention this form of dermatitis.
Avatar n tn What you describe doesn't sound remotely like herpes. Whatever is going on in your wife has nothing to do with you; such symptoms are everyday occurrences in millions of women. Yeast is a good bet.
Avatar n tn my eye doctor told me it was due to mild allergies and prescribed eye drops which didnt help in the least so i turned to over the counter allergy medicine which hasn't helped either (so i dont think it's allergies) and in the last 3 weeks not only are my eyelids itchy but when i wake up in the morning my upper eye lids are bright red and swelled up so bad that its embarassing!!!!
Avatar n tn Now recently my 1 year old daughter has began to develop the same thing. What concerns me is that Lupus is common with the women on my mom's side of the family including my sister and her syptoms began with this rash. It might not be the same for all of you but one characteristic sypmtom of lupus is a malar rash which can be red or scaly dry skin on the upper part of your face and over the bridge of your nose.
Avatar f tn I'm not lactating, I've also never been pregnant. I do sometimes have an itchy sensation on the tip of my nipples. I had this quite strongly about a year ago on both nipples, but now only slightly on the nipple of the breast that has the lump. About a week ago I noticed the skin area over the lump being slightly redder than the skin around it. Otherwise no discharge or anything like that. I spoke to my doctor initially 1.5 months ago when I first discovered it.
Avatar f tn My mom had something similar and went in to have it removed. She has a tiny scar, but is glad it is gone. I don't know what caused it. Her procedure was outpatient, so she went home the same day.
Avatar n tn I get a feeling in my lower stomach, usually on the left side, and not sure what it is either. My boyfriend and I joke that its "the baby kicking" but I had about 10 pregnancy tests when it all started and an ultrasound and they all came out negative. The doctors still dont know whats wrong with me and its been since Feb of this year. Ive had all the symptoms since then, and have gained 25 lbs and up until the last couple months my period was normal. but the last 2 have been.... odd.
Avatar n tn I am so embarrassed that I don't even ask the doctor about it. But I have heard that if you are overweight than that's what causes the dark discoloration. IF you lose weight it should go away. But I only thought that white people never got it and only other people with tanner skin tones do. but its good to know that I am not the only one. I wish there was a way to make the dark discoloration go away because I never wear tank tops because of it.
1542088 tn?1314652780 I actually came to our thread to ask what doctor's prescribe. Anyway, it started with a terrible sore throat and in a day it progressed to scratchy with a headache, stuffy nose and overall dead-head. I took a half dose of Tylenol twice yesterday, and have been sipping hot water, lemon and honey. I've also been drinking 2 liters of water. Did your doctor prescribe anything? I wanted to know if Saline nasal spray is okay.
1160836 tn?1332333769 I saw this show on history about the lil swimmers and they show why they live for 3-5 in a women. must see.. those lil swimmers have so much to deal with when in side our bodys. its crazy that our bodys will kill the lil swimmers, I guess that is a good thing because then we would be like dog having 8 -10 babies at a time... lol...
Avatar f tn This is uncommon, but it is why you should see your doctor if you have eczema on only one nipple. It occurs mainly in middle-aged or elderly women. It is not usually itchy, but there may be a pricking or burning feeling. You can learn more about this through this link: ‘http://www.embarrassingproblems.co.uk/nipples.htm An intraductal papilloma, on the other hand, is a small, wart-like growth that projects into the breast ducts near the nipple. This causes a bloody or sticky discharge.
Avatar n tn 1.One of the women claimed working in porn. 2.No direct touching of genitals but the women might have rubbed their fingers on vaginas briefly and touched my lips, hands, chest, cheeks. 3.No kissing and no direct sexual contact involved though I touched their other body parts 4.I remember that a drop of the woman's saliva (one from porn) flew on my face. There may have been more drops of saliva due to proximity 5.
1413380 tn?1307299164 With your cycles being irregular, it is hard to say for sure what is going on. Old blood is a very dark red, almost brown, color. This could you having your regular period but there are other causes also. I'm not sure exactly what you mean by the circles around your nipples. If you are indeed pregnant, your breasts will go through a lot of changes. They can be sore, tingly, sensitive to touch, and itchy. You may see a blue vein under your skin that you haven't seen before.
603463 tn?1220630455 *Use urine collected first thing in the morning--it is more concentrated. You can collect the urine and save it in a labeled container in the refrigerator if you need to run to the store for the test kit. *Don't drink too much fluid before testing. This will dilute the urine. *If you are testing later in the day, make sure it has been at least four hours since you last emptied your bladder. *Check the expiration date on your test.
529981 tn?1212853666 Even after I wash my hair, the grainy like build up is still there. It is NOT flaky what so ever. My hair has also started to fall out and at the end of my hair, a white little grain is at the end. Hair will not stop falling out. I have gotten blood tests at a dermatology office and everything was normal. I also have tried about very type of zinc pyrithione shampoo, at the highest concentrations. Also I have tried, salycylic shampoos, tar shampoos, jojoba oil, AND nothing seems to help.
Avatar n tn my nipples had the same white thick gunk coming out the peircing holes, along with ALOT of soarness in just the nipples. the soarness stopped in my second trimester, THANK GOD. i did breastfeed for the first three months, and much to my dismay stopped producing milk after that and had to quit. while breasfeeding though, be prepared for the milk to come out of the piercing holes! my husband found it hilarious!
1408770 tn?1283216803 No I havent been told that I actually have cysts, it is just an idea because my mom had them, I dont really have pain in my PELVIS but i do get cramping in my lower abdomen and up higher to my ribs, i think the pains near my ribs is indigestion. but I never have irregular periods or major cramps or extremely intense pains.. So it is possible to still have children? maybe later on if it is cysts?
10947 tn?1281407852 I had a problem with very itchy nipples for several months. I was too embarrassed to talk to anyone about it. Finally after it had gone on for 7 months I decided to ask the doctor about it during a physical exam. He said it was probably an allergic reaction, and suggested I switch all my underclothes to 100% cotton. After seeing all this about the victoria's secret bras today, I went and pulled out my old bra, and sure enough it's the victoria's secret 'angels secret embrace'. Push up.
Avatar n tn (..but my nipples has no symptoms such as-swelling/crusty skins or pain-ive nothing like them signs-i thought could be my bra or maybe the washing liquid i am using.yesterda i bought an e45 cream for my nipples.i have applied and somehow stopped the itchiness..my nipples are perfect in colors no discolorations/swelling or redness so i said could be just a minor itch ..im still praying though.i think youre right could be also part of hormonal imbalances as i think too much..
Avatar f tn My chest has been broke out in red, extremely itchy rashes for months now. It is now spreading down my stomach and my arms, but mainly it is in my chest and right along where the wire is. Can anybody help me?
Avatar m tn HIV is not transmitted by kissing, even with sores in the mouth. Despite the billions of kissing events in the AIDS era, not one case of HIV has been known to be transmitted that way, even though millions of those kisses undoubtedly were with cuts in the mouth or on the lips.
Avatar n tn I'm not sure, but I wonder if the color has to do with what you are putting in your body. I imagine it's like beast feeding, the things you put in your body end up in your breasts. I've seriously got to quit smoking, I'm going to try that new prescription medication, I heard it is helping a lot of people to quit. Anyways, I wonder if whatt we put in our body may be a contributing factor of us getting breast cancer. I also wonder if we should be squeezing this stuff out of out breasts or not.
