Q: My nipples itch and look faded
about two weeks ago my nipples started to itch. The right one much more than the left. They also seem to be fading in color. Any ideas?
Gosh, could be lots of things, though probably not breast cancer. When something happens to both breasts at once, you can generally rule out cancer. Did you change your laundry detergent? Get a new bra? Been out in the sun or swimming? Chlorine, maybe? Maybe you should go to the doctor to find out what's up, and get something to stop that itching - it must be uncomfortable! Good luck - PJH
