I've been experiencing dryness next to my right nipple; it

Customer Question

I've been experiencing dryness next to my right nipple; it takes some part of my nipple but not entirely. It's extremely itchy!! It's been like that for over a year now. I've tried to apply different types of lotion to moisturize the area, but nothing works.
JA: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the itch better or worse?
Customer: Over a year and no it's just suddenly so itchy.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: My mom had breast cancer.
