The breast ducts form a confluence meeting in the center of the breast at the skin level as the nipple. Those malignancies arising in the terminal milk ducts spill onto the areola as Pagets disease which is is a rare form of breast cancer in which cancer cells collect in or around the nipple.

My 10 month old has what was said to be a yeast infection, but it is primarily on the labia and severly itchy and not better after 2 weeks of medicated butt paste for yeast infections could this be staph or eczema?
