It sounds like a bacterial boil

Detailed Answer:
HI,

I can understand your concerns.

First thing, do not squeese it.

It sounds like a bacterial boil but it will be better if you can upload a picture.

Get a culture microscopy and cytology of the discharge.

Do you have fever or pain?

Brief Answer:
Its nipple infection

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX

It looks like a infection of the nipples.

Apply fusidic cream and clotrimazole cream alternatively three to four times a day after cleaning with soap water and drying it.

You should keep the area moist WITH THE CREAMS at all times.

DONOT wear brassiere for the time being. wear loose clothes which doesn't rub the nipples.

It will take 7-10 days of regular application of cream and no irritation to treat this.

Before this if you can get a culture report and antibiotics sensitivity it will be better
