    Hey everyone. For a few years my sister and I have been suffering similar symptoms at the same time but its really worrying me. My nipples will become raw, secreting a clear pus which scabs over and is painful when it cracks. I have been using clingfilm to create a barrier between my clothes but today my nipples have been leeched of their usual red colour and the normally small bumps are large and irritated. Doctors gave us a cream but no official diagnosis and no cure, just a brief relief of symptoms. Does this happen to anyone else?? I am so uncomfortable and wont even remove my bra infront of my partner.

    This sounds like a rather severe hormonal condition. Oftentimes nipple discharge is the result of changes in hormone levels during your menstrual cycle; but it sounds like your experience is more drastic than most. Thankfully, since it's been going on for a few years, it's very unlikely it would be related to cancer; cancer symptoms don't stay the same, but quickly worsen. However, I'd still suggest you get this checked by a breast specialist, a doctor or nurse who specializes in conditions of the breast. A change in diet, or perhaps some hormone therapy, might prove helpful to you. Good luck - PJH
