What causes painful swelling and redness of nipple?
Thanks for the query.
I have read your query and seen the photographs.
There is definitely redness there which could be a local infection or some insect bite.
Take ibuprofen 400 mg three times a day and apply local ice pack and see for another 24 hours.
In case your problem deteorates then you consult your doctor for prescription of antibiotics.
There is no reason to get worried.
I hope it helps,however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
