Odd Itch

Postby RagDoll » Wed Aug 04, 2010 3:22 pm

This is a bit of a random one, but for the last few weeks one of my nipples has been a bit sore and itchy :oops:

I have eczema, so I don't know if it could be that?! I never imagined I'd get anything like that on my nipple, but I guess it's just skin at the end of the day. I have been moisturising it a lot to see if that would help, but it hasn't cured it.

I know I probably need to see a doctor if it continues, but has anyone ever experienced anything like this before?

I havent, but I heard someone saying that if your nipples are itchy you should use savlon on it?? Dont know if that's true or not, but might be worth a try.

It is possible to get eczema on your nipple.. my sister has suffered pretty badly with it. I would be wary of savlon if it is that, as it will sting like hell. Go speak to your doctor I think.

Well as most know here, I do have eczema, and occasionally I have had one of my nipples itch but what I normally do is just wash it and apply moisturiser. That normally solves the problem.
What moisturiser are you using?

Doublebase - it was one recommended by the dermotologist I went to see re: my eczema, so it's not like it's something that would irritate it, in fact, if it is eczema, it should help it.

Could be mastitis (an infection of the nipple), but only a doc could tell you really.
