Rashes Around The Areola.

My friend has noticed some rashes around her areola and she's kinda worried about it. What could be the reason for it?

Answer

Hi - Nipples are a very sensitive part of your body, and can react to a change in laundry detergent or shower gel; they can also become irritated by clothing. Could be hormonal. If it's on one breast, could be an early sign of inflammatory breast cancer, though it's very rare. Most likely it's nothing to worry about. But please read our post on nipple issues for more information about if she SHOULD worry. Good luck - PJH
