If you feel a mass, or if there are any visible skin changes, see a doctor now. ...Read more

Could ne nothing: if you are sexually active ,your partner might been a little rough while handling your breast. assuming that you never had children and you are not breast feeding, and you said you are not pregnant, then it could be as simple as your bras pressing on the nipple, or the way you sleep ,you end up bruising your nipple. if none of these answers are possible ,go and see a doctor. ...Read more

2 weeks ago, I had a redness/pain under my breast nipple that went away with bactroban (mupirocin) within a week. Since then, I've had a hard,small painless lump?

Diagnosis???: Was there a scabby infection ON THE SURFACE [impetigo]? Or was there something deep under the skin? If it was deep the Bactroban (mupirocin) had no role in the evolution of it. Nipple discharge? Probably an inflamed cyst but don't take a chance on something more sinister. Check with your Dr. Consult with a breast specialist may be in order. By the time you go back it might be gone. ...Read more
