Customer Question
Hi Pearl. I have...

Hi Pearl. I have an issue with my left breast for years now. I have an ongoing itch which feels like it’s inside my milk duct. I have tried so many creams for thrush and dermatitis however as my skin (nipple) appears totally fine they have done nothing to help. I have had a ultrasound and everything is normal. I have tried various natural oils which have also not helped. I have taken oral fungal medicine and anti hastimine tablets. I am now at the point where I have caused damage in my chest muscles as I am continuously wiggling my shoulder to allow my nipple to be ‘itched’ without touching it. I have no other solutions. Please help!

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

Not that I know of. I have been taking Nexium for the last 10 months or so but this problem has been going on for yesrs

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I have a hiatus hernia but that is all.

Do you have any rash at all ? Any lump or change in appearance of your breast? Any difference in size ?

Do you have history of any allergic conditions like asthma or runny nose / rhinitis ?

No there are no rashes or lumps or changes on my nipple. I do suffer from sinusitis.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
No call thank you.
OB GYN Doctor: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 3 months ago

It could be due to pinching of nerve in the area . Constant tingling especially localized to one specific part of the body could be a result of that. You can try medications that help with nerve symptoms like pregabalin or gabapentin. You may also add in vitamin B12 supplements . Both would help with your symptoms.

Let me know if you have any more queries

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
