Hi I'm 16 and my right nipple is red and has a small patch of dry skin underneath, and it has been very itchy for about 3-4 days Could it be cancer?

Hi I'm 16 and my right nipple is red and has a small patch of dry skin underneath, and it has been very itchy for about 3-4 days Could it be cancer?

Red itchy nipple: A red rash over the breast can be the first sign of breast cancer but it is very uncommon. CA is found as lump, or on mammogram. At 19 it would be almost unheard of to have breast cancer. Since it itches it's more likely to be a reaction to something like soap, clothes, or even from sweating. Wash the area twice a day with a mind soap, dry off well, hyydrocortisone for 2 weeks. If not clear see doc ...Read more

I would recommend: Medical assessment. It could just be inflammation but you need to rule out more serious causes. I would not jump to conclusions but here is a good article about Paget Disease. See: https://www.cancer.gov/types/breast/paget-breast-fact-sheet ...Read more

Hi I'm on holiday and its 40degrees. Like many women I have a little thigh rubbing but it has caused a few red lumps and dry skin - there is also a yellow liquid that comes from them. It's very painful what can you recommend I do? Thank you!!

Zinc oxide: Chafing or rubbing of the thighs can result in various skin issues including the development of bullae with serous (inflammatory fluid). I would reccomend you apply a form of barrier cream. There are many types but many of them are thick, white and formulated with zinc oxide. The zinc oxide creams with vitamin a and vitamin d will also help healing ...Read more

Any quick cure for chest and body acne with flaky dry skin?

Any quick cure for chest and body acne with flaky dry skin?

No quick fix: I'm sorry your acne has been neglected up until now. Start applying topical benzoyl peroxide as you can tolerate and make an appointment with your physician. The benzoyl peroxide will not clear you, and you will need prescription-strength rx added to it. Several weeks on antibiotics may get things under control, or you may be a candidate for isotretinoin, rough but effective. ...Read more

Help please, I feel like I'm premature aging! My hair and skin is dry, skin looks leathery. Keep burping and my chest hurts. Lots of bloodwork normal?

See a doctor: At 18 you might want to see an adolescent medicine doctor or a specialist in internal medicine (an "internist") who would be able to evaluate these symptoms. Depending on the history and clinical findings, further testing (thyroid function, autoimmune screening) might be considered. Concerning chest pain lasting more than a few minutes should be taken seriously. ...Read more

I have this dry skin problem for a few years and now I'm just getting irritated by it. Dry spots on my chest and I keep bleeding from my back.

Are you certain it: Is only dry skin? What have you received in terms of treatment? If you have not visited a family physician or dermatologist, I would urge you to give it a try. If you already have, then perhaps go back and see if he/she can suggest an alternative method of treatment. Sometimes trial and error works best for skin conditions. They are after all very personal. ...Read more

Ringworm is itchy and you didn't mention that. I'm curious what you have tried to treat it and if u r using any new soaps or creams.
