Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Is there is a change in the color of the skin on the nipple?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Do you have itching anywhere else?

Customer:

colour hasn't changed no itching anywhere else

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Have you tried anything for this as yet?

Customer:

nothing

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I think that a mild fungal infection may be causing the itching. It could be a mild allergy as well. Using a combination of an antifungal with cortisone such as daktacort cream may help.

Customer:

im worried about this as my mum had breast cancer and my cousin at 32yrs old has just finished treatment for breast cancer

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Its highly unlikely to be cancer
