Sore, tender, painful nipple, having protected intercourse. On birth control. What's wrong?

Hi I m a 22 year old female. My nipples are sore but my breast are not swollen or tender. My nipples are tender to touch and even my shirt is bothering them. It almost like a burning pain . The pain came randomly and just started. My period is just ending its very light and dark. I am sexually active but I have been using protection. I am not on birth control . Also the color of my areola is no different and I haven t increased or even recently exercised. Just wondering what I can do to elevate my pain and if I should be concerned.

Hi, Welcome to Health care magic forum.
As you describe, it appears to be the infection of the nipples,may be skin infection, or inner infection, The other cause may be the opening of the milk channels, and inflammation.
I advise you to consult a surgeon for diagnosis and treatment.
I usually prescribe to my patient with such symptoms cifixime, serratiopeptidase,and diclofenac .
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery. Thank you.
