Wife Has Slightly Swollen Left Nipple An Pain In Same Nipple. Any Ideas?

Answer

This article on nipple issues will give you some background information. Your wife should think about whether something might be causing nipple irritation like a new bra, unusual exercise, or new skin care products. If the problem lasts longer than a week or two, seeing a doctor would be a good idea. A scaly rash on her nipple could be a sign of a type of cancer called Paget's Disease of the Breast. Most likely, this will turn out to be a minor infection or inflammation. If it gets worse (red, more swelling, discharge) or if she runs a fever, she should call the doctor right away. I hope the problem resolves itself quickly.
