Thank you for providing the additional details.

Based on your description, this could be mammary duct ectasia typically seen in women after age 45.

These are some homeopathic medicines that can cure her problem.
1. Silicea-200 - liquid dilution - 2 to 3 drops every 4 hourly 3 times in a day for 7 days
2. Pulsatilla-200 - liquid dilution - just after 5 minutes of giving Silicea, give this one similarly every 4 hourly 3 times in a day for 7 days
3. XXXXXXX sulph - 6x - 30 gm bio chemic tablets - 6 tablets at a time every 4 hourly 4 times in a day for 15 days

Hope this answers your query. Let me know if you have any doubts.
