Gynecomastia: This is likely transient gynecomastia that occurs with puberty will usually resolve in 6 mo to a year.

Burning up hot but I feel cold, body aching, nipples sore, cramping, heart rate over 100, what could this mean? Is it serious I need to see a doctor?

Tests: Well, you need a few tests: I'd start with a pregnancy test if that is a physiologic possibility for you (?). You should get and use a thermometer and see what your temperature is when you're feeling hot. If it's >99°, you should be further evaluated - depending on specifics, other tests may be indicated: stool culture? blood count? electrolytes? Any flu-like illness could also do this. ...Read more

My armpits feel sore. Skin clear. Also left breast throbbing for several months. Nipple feels cold & wet sometimes, but when checked, nothing?

My armpits feel sore. Skin clear. Also left breast throbbing for several months. Nipple feels cold & wet sometimes, but when checked, nothing?

Can check the...: A primary care doctor can check the whole area of the chest, back, and breasts, to see if there is a problem in that area that is "referring" soreness to the armpits. Sometimes pain sensations in a problem area travel to other nerves, and make a person "feel" the pain in another part of the body. This may be the case, if the armpits "feel" soreness but are normal on exam. ...Read more

One day last year it was cold and I was out with a wet shirt and my left nipple hurted. Now it kinda hurts when ipress on it but nothing looks bad.?

Gynecomastia: It's very unlikely that your now painful nipple is related to what happened a year ago. Instead, it may represent early or mild gynecomastia or male breast development which is often due to excess estrogen from belly fat. Go see your family doc to be sure it's nothing worse, like an infection, to confirm your diagnosis, and to discuss treatment options. ...Read more

I have got puffy nipples for more than 3 yrs. When I bath or in cold it contracts. Is this fat? It can be removed? And how? Thank u

Puffy nipples: Its difficult to comment without photos but your nipples are reacting normally to stimulation. Removing tissue beneath the areola can result in numbness and I doubt you will find many surgeons willing to do that unless your condition is really 'off the wall' puffiness. ...Read more

Historia scabbed cold sobre came un contact with muy nipple.... he was sucking hard so it left a little cut on it. I'm so scared. What can I do?

Historia scabbed cold sobre came un contact with muy nipple.... he was sucking hard so it left a little cut on it. I'm so scared. What can I do?

Probably okay: Once cold sores are scabbed over, they are usually not contagious. Of course, it's always possible that some virus may still be there. If so, and it came in contact with broken skin, it can transmit the virus and cause sores to develop there. Acyclovir can prevent the virus from growing. This can be a painful infection, but not dangerous for those with normal immune systems. ...Read more

Is it bad that my nipples don't show unless I'm cold or aroused?? What does that mean?

Its normal: You happen to have nipples that are retracted a bit so they seem flush with the surrounding skin. Cold and arousal will stimulate the nipple to expand and then you see the nipple show. Its a normal variant. Some people have more prominent nipple than others. Its not bad or a health hazard. ...Read more

My nipples have always been so sensitive, it hurts when they're cold or when my husbands touches them longer than a few seconds. How can I help this?

Lanolin: Over sensitive nipples can be from eczema. The nipples are one of the most sensitive parts of the body. If the skin is thickened and dry when they are stimulated and engorged they hurt. The key here is lots of lanolin moisturizers and no soap. You can also ask your doc to have "jack newman’s nipple cream compounded" which has helped a lot of woman. ...Read more
