You should see a doctor to rule out any type of problem. The fact that these sores are getting larger should be investigated by a medical doctor. I would make an appointment as soon as possible. He or she can not only tell you if these sores are a problem, but they will probably be able to give you something to make you more comfortable and/or to treat your problem.
Thank you for your reply.
I am planning to see a md about this but was hoping for something to help with the itching while I am waiting for the appointment.
Also, I was hoping for some guesses as to what this could be ... a skin infection, duct infection, dry skin, Paget's disease.
Maybe it's just all stress due to the job layoff!
I don't feel like I received any advice on what I could do NOW for this problem. I was hoping for answers like:
- try gold bond lotion
- try oatmeal bath
I understand that it's difficult to answer without seeing it.
I will do what I knew was best to begin with ... go to the MD.
Thank you so much!
i agree with nurse(angel) that a proper diagnose can be made only after clinical examination.
i think it may be a fungal infection ,for this you can have an antifungal cream that will solve out this prob,like Ciclopirox olamine ie Batrafen cream, its also available in powder form or solution.
apply Batrafen Cream to affected area (clean dry)twice daily on average and allowed to dry. Treatment should be carried out until the symptoms have subsided (2 weeks in most cases).
if its allergic please you can use some OTC hydrocortisone cream.
when sleeping at night remove your bra when you go to bed so that the area under the breast should have enough air circulation,
keep the area areola clean, (warm water wash )as the sores may get infected.avoid touching with unwashed hands.
Remember Humidification is good but excess may result in fungal infections of skin.
(however if the problem persist please visit your doctor for futher evaluation )
i hope this will help!
