User :   it started to work on my infected nail
User :   then I started to get small lumps under my nipple and my chest started to get larger
User :   i stopped it almost 2 weeks ago and nothing has changed
Doctor :   Ok
User :   any ideas of what could have caused this
Doctor :   Do you think use of Lamisil has caused this, Is that your question?
User :   yes, and how it might have caused it..For example could it be something with my liver and increased estrogen production
User :   and if so how would I fix this if there is a way
User :   is it a cause of gyno or something
Doctor :   I have not heard of this kind of side effect for lamisil, Terbinafine
User :   there isn't anything about lamisil causing this problem but of other anti fungal products
Doctor :   Only general measure the doctor see is if the Liver function is right before they prescribe this
Doctor :   I need to know few more details about you
User :   ok

Doctor :   There could be different reasons, out of which I could immediately think is 215 pounds of weight
Doctor :   Second, this is a normal phenomenon in men to have puffy nipple
Doctor :   or protruded nipple
User :   all of a sudden? Like over was diffently some chemical reaction that isn't going away
User :   I only have about 12-14% body fat
User :   what causes lumps under the nipple?
User :   and all of a sudden isn't normal the way these look all of a sudden

User :   yes it does appear as a breast
Doctor :   and can you tell me after how long after you start of Lamisil you noticed this
User :   about 1.5 months
User :   yea all of a suddent I woke up and it looked like a breast
Doctor :   Ok, as you said if you are relating to a chemical reaction
Doctor :   then it is by only two
Doctor :   one hormones and the other medicines
Doctor :   yes, terbinafine is one such kind of medicine which can cause such after prolonged use
Doctor :   if you are still using it
Doctor :   Stopping it should reduce the size in 1 wk to 10 days
