Question: Hello, Dr. Dr. Nagamani Ng. As a follow up on my question about the discoloration next to my right nipple (with that photo), several days ago the discoloration basically peeled off like a scab. There was also a little bit of white skin that peeled off too. I was rather concerned that what I thought was just discoloration peeled off. What would this mean? Thanks.
