My nipple is red, its hard and its crusty on the outside of it, in the middle of it, it has opened sore cracks, and they bleed sometimes. I have had this problem for about 2 years. It started happening after i went off a birthcontrol. im on birth control again, but a different brand. Discharge does come out of it when forced, and it hurts. Do i need to go to a doctor, or can i treat it myself? And has anybody else experienced this?...im only 20 years old, and never been pregnent. Thanks:confused:

  • Hi you should definatly go to see your GP, might be nothing, but at least you'll have an answer. I've just been to see my GP about my sore nipple, not as bad as yours, got checked out, nothing too serious, just rubbing on tight clothing.

  • , just rubbing on tight clothing.that would be my guess, along those lines of dry skin and chaffing. try applying moisturizer to them to see if that helps. also i'd go see a doctor.

I would be Greatfull

Thanks:confused:I think you need to go in doctor for a better result. Maybe the birth control cause it. If its caused by the birth control ask doctor for another.Dialysis Software
