Customer Question

Hello. I have been having issues with my left breast. It's been going on for probably 4-6 months. I am nursing and my baby is almost 13 months old now. Well when this issue started, I got it checked out and was treated for a yeast infection. I haven't nursed on that side since. At first my breast was drying out (mostly around my nipple). Now it isn't so much dry but the nipple sometimes looks purple and just doesn't stick out as far as normal. I don't have pain or any unusual lumps.
JA: How long have you had the lump? Is it hard or soft?
Customer: I said no lumps
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I don't think so

Do you have any cracks or sores on the nipple?

Any itching?

is the left breast somewhat larger than the right one?
