How old are you?: Many ailments are affected by age. So let us know this important parameter next time you ask a medical question.
You can wait and watch your purple spots for a few days, see if these will go away once you stopped itching. Keep the area washed up with soap and water couple times a day. If these get worse after one week of observation, get a medical doctor to examine you and offer you some advise.

I'm breast feeding and have sore nipples so I started to use nipple shields I now have really itchy nipples and spots around my breasts and on my body?

I'm breast feeding and have sore nipples so I started to use nipple shields I now have really itchy nipples and spots around my breasts and on my body?

See md: It could be a skin yeast or bacterial infection or an allergic reaction to the material in the nipple shield. Scabies (a mite) can cause an itchy rash on the nipples and elsewhere (but shouldn't be related to the nipple shield use).

Need to Visualize: Have a healthcare personnel look at the lesions to determine the nature of it. Your primary care provider or GYN doctor will be of great help. Be sure to get STD screening while there.

Dry Skin: Areolas can get dry in the winter just like other skin. Use a scent-free lotion or ointment like eucerin calming cream. If you notice anything else with that breast: discharge that is red or greenish, red tender or swollen areas, palpable lumps, or if the skin starts to look like an orange, see your physician. Also, women's breasts are rarely symmetrical, so having a larger areola is normal.

Doctor can evaluate: Rashes are difficult to describe in words. A primary care doctor or a dermatologist can examine a white spots rash to see what it might be. Sometimes rashes are from an allergy to something, but many times they are not. For unusual rashes, a dermatologist will help. Causes of whitish spots include fungi (t. Corporis, t. Versicolor), eczema, autoimmune reactions, irritants, virus infections, etc...
