I popped a zit on my left breast. So I got an infection. I was given two sets of antibiotics and I suppose that went away.
However, my nipple never stopped being red/sore. And when I say sore, I mean extremely sensitive and painful :mad: .
Not only that, but my areola now has these hard lumps/bumps in the section where I previously had the infection. They only "raise" when I touch that area. Well-- I believe this issue is solved. I had a biopsy on one of the lumps and there was no sign of Paget's disease of the nipple there. There was no sign of fungus. They believe I have perivascular dermatitis and that I should put an anti-inflammatory cream there. The bumps still don't go away but I guess I'll continue putting on the cream until the cream runs out. Doesn't seem to be doing a thing. But whatever, my areola doesn't hurt(just a superficial ugly problem) so that's fine 'n dandy, but...
My nipple still hurts. And I wonder if it's true that I don't have paget's, because the biopsy was not of my nipple, it was of my areola. My nipple is what really pains me. One other note: I also had a sonogram and they did find a cyst shortly after my infection, but the radiologist ignored it because she said due to my age, there is probably nothing wrong with me. When I told her that my nipple hurt and was red, she said it looked normal to her. Well, I know my body, and I know that I'm not in pain there normally (it's been about 2 months) and I KNOW that it isn't supposed to be that red!
Any suggestions? I've been to the doctors so much that I'm afraid my insurance company will stop paying for the bills :(
