What causes reddish bumps on the lower part of left nipple?

default
Posted on Mon, 10 Nov 2014
Question: I woke up yesterday with several very small reddish bumps on the lower part of my left nipple with a few of them being puss filled. At that time they caused no pain and were not itchy. Today I woke up and every 10 minutes or so now I get a slight pinching sensation as if they were trying to buss themselves and sometimes when my shirt rubs up against them they are sensitive where as majority times they are not.

Help!

It looks like bacterial infection.

Hi

You need Antibiotic and anti inflammatory tablets.
Another condition which has to be differentiated is HERPES ZOSTER.The lesions are similar. There will be severe pain in herpes zoster.
You should consult your Dermatologist and clarify.
Nothing to worry.
