Brief Answer:
It is due to infection and inflammation of nipple

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thank you for posting in health care magic.

It seems that nipple is enlarged due to infection and associated inflammation in your case.
I prescribe Antibiotic like Clindamycin, Anti inflammatory tablet to my patients with similar complaints. I also add Ointment containing Mupirocin for local application. You can apply Ointment and cover the nipple with dressing so that it won't cause irritation when your shirt touches.

Please consult a General Surgeon to get examined. Nothing to worry.

If you have any queries, I will clarify further.
Wish you good health.
Regards

Hi
You can take the antibiotic.
Usually, I prescribe Antibiotic like Clindamycin capsule 600mg thrice daily. If there is no response, I will swich to another antibiotic like Linezolid 600mg twice daily and Cefuroxime 500mg twice daily.Anti inflammatory tablet should also be added.
Nothing to worry.
It will come down.
Wish you good health and speedy recovery.

Hi, My wife had a dermoyd cyst removed a few year ago and with it her left ovary. Every since then, she has had a really hard time during her period. Lately, she has experienced a rapid heart rate. She is 23 years old and 105lbs. Generally healthy but she is a smoker. She rarely drinks alcohol and doesn't do any drugs. Her water intake is good as is her diet. She doesn't feel any stress, although, our life is rather stressful. She is anemic and has low blood pressure and her heart rate averages around 100bpm during her period. Is this something we should worry about?

I have had a thudding heartbeat for two days, off and on, mostly on. Also accompanied by shortness of breath. The heartbeat isn't fast or irregular, but I can feel it, like it's heavy in my chest. I've had this before a few years ago, and my doctor thought it was anxiety and wanted to out me on an anti anxiety drug, but I felt like it was a physical issue instead of anxiety. I have low stress, not usually anxious, work out a few times a week, non smoker (for 5 years) recently lost about 35 lbs (1-1/2 years ago) Could this be allergies?
