For a teen girl, would nipple rash only by eczema or could it be a paget's disease or breast cancer?

Eczema: In a teen age girl breast cancer is highly unlikely. If the rash persist beyond 3-4 weeks, you should see your doctor.

Rash: Paget's disease in a teenager would be extraordinarily rare. Nevertheless, if the rash persists i would have it checked.

Eczema: Paget's disease of the breast is not a disease of teenager. It is most likely eczema or other skin condition. If eczema cream does not help- bring her to her doc/dermatologist- perhaps sronger steroids or other treatment needed.

Paget's disease is a: form of breast cancer. It would be an exceedingly remote possibility in a teenager.
