I have had sore, itchy breasts for three months. It's getting worse. Nipples look larger & darker. No rashes. No lumps. Neg hpt. What can cause this?

Breast evaluation: At age 21 it is highly unlikely that this is a serious condition. You can schedule a visit to have your nipples checked. Weight changes, diet, caffeine intake, ill fitting bras are all causes of nipple itching. There are many nipple creams available at the pharmacy for itching.

What might cause dry itchy dark patch, itchy breast, itchy rash on back waist area, sudden weight gain, feeling full, daily headaches. And more.

What might cause dry itchy dark patch, itchy breast, itchy rash on back waist area, sudden weight gain, feeling full, daily headaches. And more.

See a physician ASAP: I realize that you are suffering, but you are not giving me enough details to give you specific advice. Itchy rashes can be associated with some weight gain if there is some swelling. However, daily headache, feeling lightheaded are not part of it. Also, collapse and pain, and more are too broad terms that need to be evaluated in more detail. Start by seeing your primary care physician asap!

I've been experiencing sore and itchy breasts for a week or so and now have a red pin prick rash on one of my breasts can anybody help please?

Hydrocortisone cream: I would first try a Hydrocortisone cream for a week followed by a review of all oral and topical medications or creams used as well as avoidance of sun exposure. If this does not improve in 7-10 days, I would see a dermatologist.

Is there a reason for sore & itchy breasts? It feels like the itch is on the inside (scratching the outside & putting moisturizer on doesn't help.)

Yeast: The most common reason for a cheap breast is a yeast infection on the skin. This can be easily treated with an over-the-counter antifungal cream. It's very common.

Not concerned yet: None of your symptoms are indicative that you're pregnant. Wait to see if your period comes as expected. If it doesn't, wait a week and take a home pregnancy test.

I 42 years old I have not had a period in over a month. I have tender and itchy breasts. Itchy clitoris light cramping feeling and a lot of gas.

I 42 years old I have not had a period in over a month. I have tender and itchy breasts. Itchy clitoris light cramping feeling and a lot of gas.

Several things: 1. Home pregnancy test. If negative then monitor periods and see your doctor if they stay irregular 2. Get evaluated for the itchy genitals. Yeast is most likely but there are other possibilities. 3. Mammogram once per year and a breast exam by your doctor 4. Gas x is over the counter. Miralax (polyethylene glycol) helps if there is constipation.

I have very itchy breast with sore painful at times nipples. I had a itchy spot under my breast for a while. It was not infected until after prednison?

I have very itchy breast with sore painful at times nipples. I had a itchy spot under my breast for a while. It was not infected until after prednison?

See a doctor: This may be something simple like a simple rash or something serious like Paget's disease of the nipple which is associated with cancer. The prednisone knocks down your immune system, so an infection can occur, but the purpose of the prednisone may have been to treat the itchy rash. You may need a biopsy of the nipple to evaluate for Paget's disease. See your doctor

Take a test: Don't guess. Take a test. In today's world you do not need to wonder if you are pregnant or not based on symptoms. Pregnancy tests are available at any pharmacy and in minutes you will have your answer. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period.

Dark itchy spot next to areola, also feels tingly and has gotten bigger over 3 months and I also have headaches at night and breast tenderness? 24 yo

No tumor: Breast tenderness is common especially in young patients with growth of breast tissue. The dark itchy spot may be a keratotic lesion next to areola but not tumor. If it increases in size a breast surgeon may want to do a skin biopsy in office to make dx.

Get Breast Exam: Is birth control pill causing "itchy breasts"? Your breasts are under hormonal influences throughtout the menstrual cycle. These hormones cause fluctuations in the amount of fluid in breasts. Swelling, tenderness, itching, and more can occur.

Itchy breasts painful and found a lump?

Itchy breasts painful and found a lump?

Probably all is fine: Itching breasts are usually due to a skin or nerve condition and not breast cancer. Many young women have fibrocystic lumps that aren't worrisome. But the situation should be discussed with a doctor who can take more history and examine your breasts.
