Hi,
It seems that you might be having some infection in areola giving rise to this problem.
But as you are 45 years, you requires evaluation your problem.
Consult gynaec and get your both breasts examined thoroughly for having any lumps or any abnormal discharge.
You may require Mammography.
After examination and investigations line of treatment can be decided.
Ok and take care.
