Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, and physical examination. You may try changing your bra to a natural material. You may also try going without the bra on the weekends to see if that makes a difference. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
