Thanks for your queery.

I would like to know a few things:
Is your wife suffering from diabetes?
Is there any family history of breast cancer?
Is she using razor to clean her axillary hair?

I would advice her to go for a mammography of the breast to rule out any possibility of cancer.

Secondly get her blood sugars and vitamin B-12 levels done.

Also get a check up done from your doctor and an antibiotic course of 5-7 days as per his advice. As if it is a hair follicle infection then swelling and pain will subside with the antibiotic course.

Would like to review with the reports.

Don't worry, take care.

Hello, Good morning.

I have read the history carefully.
From the history, there does not seem any obvious cause for burning pain, which she is experiencing.

I suggest getting vitamin B 12 levels done once, as deficiency of this can also lead to burning sensation.

She can continue the medications prescribed to her.

Don't worry, everything would be fine.
Take care.

Dr. Rishma Lakhani.
