Customer Question

I'm a man that has sore nipples. They stand erect if I don't put Carmex lip balm on them and a bandage on to. They feel good up until the bandage comes off then they will start being sorry again. Please tell me what else I could do to stop this problem

Thank you for your question.

Since how long are you having this problem?

Is the skin over the nipples reddish in color?

Are the nipples tender to touch?

Please let me know.

Kind regards

Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Sore nipples are not normal.

Higher estrogen level in the body can cause this.

Liver disease can lead to increased estrogen production.

Or testicular hypofunction can lead to low testosterone level.

Certain medications also can cause as side effects.

Please get your liver and testosterone level checked.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.
